Are you ready to step back in time and experience the thrill of flying in two of the most iconic WWII-era aircraft? The Arizona Commemorative Air Force is proud to offer you the chance to take a ride on the B-17 Flying Fortress "Sentimental Journey" and the B-25 Mitchell "Maid in the Shade". These planes have been fully restored and maintained to their original condition, allowing you to experience the historic flight in all its glory.

The B-17 Flying Fortress was a staple of the US military during WWII, with its massive size and heavy armament earning it the nickname of "Flying Fortress". The Sentimental Journey is one of only a few remaining operational B-17s in the world, and you have the chance to take a ride in this living piece of history. You'll experience firsthand the power of its four engines as you fly over the stunning Southern Idaho landscape.

The B-25 Mitchell is equally impressive, with its twin engines and streamlined design making it one of the most versatile planes of its time. The Maid in the Shade is a particularly rare aircraft, as it is one of only a handful of B-25s still flying today. You'll feel the thrill of flying in a plane that was once used for bombing missions and aerial reconnaissance.

Both of these planes are operated by the Arizona Commemorative Air Force, an organization dedicated to preserving the history of aviation and honoring the sacrifices of those who served in WWII. With their expert pilots and crew, you can be assured of a safe and unforgettable experience. So why not take to the skies and experience a piece of history for yourself?
