There's really only one way to experience what it was like to fly in a plane during WWII, and that's to actually fly in one! The excitement about the Warbird Weekend has spread so fast, that the planes are now flying in on Wednesday, July 7, 2021. This will allow for more flight times, but they are filling up quickly.
