If you live in Alabama, you can fly in a B-17 this weekend.

They’ve got an actual B-17, and it’s flying in Birmingham on Saturday and Huntsville on Sunday. $450 for the flight, which is undoubtedly why half of the state hasn’t already lined up for a ride.  Would I spend that much to fly in a B-17? …Probably.  At the very least, I’d agree that that’d be my Christmas and birthday present for the year.  I mean, come on.  It’s a freaking Flying Fortress.  That’s what discretionary income is for.

    There’s a military museum here in Dallas that has a few of those old birds, too. I think they’ve got a B-24 and a B-29, among others.

    Anyway, they sell tickets to ride in both planes, in various seats for various prices. Wanna be the bombardier, behind the glass nose of a B-29? $1700. $3000 for a 50-minute ride in a P-51.
