July 26, 2009 - Oshkosh, Wisconsin - There are several opportunities to take flights in three historic aircraft this week—EAA’s B-17, Aluminum Overcast; a Bell 47 helicopter; and EAA’s 1929 Ford Tri-Motor.

B-17 flights
Book your flight on EAA’s magnificent B-17G, one of only a handful of remaining Flying Fortresses in the world. Flights depart Outagamie County Regional Airport, Appleton. Passengers need to be ready to depart the check-in point by the B-17 trailer in the Warbirds area no later than one hour before their scheduled flight to be shuttled to Appleton. (Due to seat limitations, B-17 passengers will be the only people shuttled to Appleton.) Tickets are available for $385 (EAA members) and $425 (non-members) and can be purchased at the B-17 trailer, located in the Warbirds area next to the Tri-Motor building, or at the EAA Welcome Center.

Bell 47 helicopter flights
Fly over the AirVenture grounds in a Bell 47 (M*A*S*H) helicopter, operating from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Saturday, and on Sunday from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets are $40 each at Pioneer Airport’s Pitcairn Hangar, located behind the EAA AirVenture Museum.

1929 Ford Tri-Motor flights
Ride the first mass-produced airliner, the Ford Tri-Motor, directly from EAA AirVenture. Flight hours on the grounds are 7 a.m.- 6 p.m. every day. Monday through Saturday, and from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday. There’s room for nine passengers per flight, and everyone gets a window seat. Purchase your ticket for $55 each at the Tri-Motor building located at the south end of the Warbirds area.
