Flight duration: approx. 25 minutes

There are ten places to sit in the B-24. They include the bomb bay, radio operatorís area and the waist gunnerís area. There are no reserved seats on the B-24. This is because as soon as the aircraft is airborne you can get up and move throughout the aircraftÖ from the cockpit to the tail gunnerís position. You will be able to stand behind the pilots and see the controls and instruments. From there you can move back through the bomb bay and see replicas of the 500 lb. bombs used throughout the war. Next you will stand in the open waist gunnerís position behind a 50 caliber machine gun and imagine the freezing air pouring in as the Messerschmitts bear down with guns ablaze. Furthest back is the tail gunnerís position with a panoramic view.
