Book a B-29 Ride

Book Your Seat Online and SAVE...

You can relive history and ride on one of the rarest World War II bombers in existence by taking a “Living History” BOMBER RIDE. This unique in-the-air exper- ience allows you to sit in the seats our veteran's sat in and see and feel what they encountered . . . minus the bullets and flak.

Don’t miss this “once-in-a-lifetime” experience. It is a definite must for your bucket list. Once airborne you will be able to get up and move around (FAA rules require the B-29 bombardier to stay seated). Your trip back in time will allow you to honor the sacrifices of countless men and women who fought and died for our freedoms.

Bombardier Seat

         $ 1,595 at the event.
         $ 1,495 when you buy it online.   SAVE $ 100

This seat is often called the “best-seat-in-the-house” and for good reason. You are out in front of the pilots and surrounded by glass. It is easy to imagine the view of the target through the actual Norden bombsight or catch a glimpse of a Zero fighter swooping down toward you with guns blazing. FAA rules require the bombardier to remain seated throughout the flight due to the proximity to the pilots. When you buy the seat online you save $100 off the purchase price.

Flight Observer Seat

         $ 1,295 at the event.
         $ 1,245 when you buy it online.   SAVE $ 50
