    Rides are pricey but it's money well spent to at least tour the birds. From watching old movies when I was a kid I was shocked to see how small and cramped they were inside. Especially the B-24. Skin so thin you could stick an ink pen through it. Our Fathers and Grand-Father were some very special men who fought and died in those machines.

    I will try to make it and will get lots of Pic's and post them. I think my oldest daughter would love to see these planes as she is all Tom-boy and loves things of war.
