Experience a multi-sensory and immersive adventure by taking a ride on a WWII B-17 Bomber this Saturday, September 2nd at the Yankee Air Museum’s Hangar located at the Roush Aeronautics Center at the Willow Run Airport at 48075 Tyler Rd, Van Buren Charter Township, MI 48111.  This will be the last opportunity this year for those in the Detroit area to take a ride on the iconic WWII aircraft. With only three flying B-17s in North America, this opportunity is truly a rare chance to experience history in flight. The B-17 Flying Fortress was a heavy four-engine bomber in the US Army Air Force during WWII and was noted for its dangerous daylight missions over Germany.

The flight is a 30-minute experience and costs $525.00 per person. Once airborne, passengers are able to move to other positions in the aircraft including the nose, flight deck, bomb bay, radio room, and waist gunnery section. Celebrate flight with this once-in-a-lifetime experience. Rides occur from 10:00 am until 12:00 pm and you can reserve a seat by ordering online at https://yankeeairmuseum.org/fly/#b17 or walking up to see if any seats are available.
