I saw it flying patterns over Pasco, WA Thursday, wondered where it was headed, or if I missed an announcement. It is in Van Nuys, Calif. today and tomorrow.

I took the ride a few years back in Lawrence, MA. It was the best $300 that I have spent in a long time. I guess that the flight is more $$ now, but worth every penny.

I had the opportunity to go up in 2007 & being a member of the EAA, I got the "radio operator's" station (photo below) for take-off & landing - some of the best $'s I've ever spent - she's coming again to Seattle in June - might have to do it again !

Last year I was able to fly on the B-29 FIFI on her arrival into Oshkosh and put the flight on YouTube as "B-29 FIFI Arrival at Oshkosh 2015". The flight was from Madison WI. and took about 40 minutes. It was INCREDIBLE !!!!!!!!!!

I recently took a ride in a B-17 Bomber, The Texas Raiders, at the Spirit of St. Louis Airshow. I sat in the bombardier/nose gunners position. Expensive, but an awesome experience, I highly recommend it!

On June 11 at our air show here a B25 will be giving rides. One of the guys that started up our club 30 years ago was a radio man on a B25, and remembers flying over Greenland and seeing the squadron of p38s ditched on the snow.
