Vintage World War II aircraft are making their way to the Evansville Wartime Museum, and officials with the museum say it's something the public won't want to miss.
Among other aircraft, the public is being invited to tour and ride the iconic B-17 Flying Fortress when the Texas Raiders visit the River City from Friday, July 9, through Sunday, July 11.
Accompanying the B-17 during the three-day event will be two other WWII aircraft: The SNJ / T-6 Texan advanced trainer, in which thousands of airmen learned to fly for combat, as well as the twin-engine Navy JRB transport Little Raider in which the whole family can fly together.
A limited number of flights will be available during the event. The museum says flights on the B-17 start at $495. Flights on the T-6 are $380, and seats on the Navy transport start at $100 each.
Ground tours will be conducted from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Friday, July 9, and from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday, July 10, and Sunday, July 11, excluding flying times.
Admission to the event itself is $20 per person and includes full admission to both the museum and on-board tours of the visiting warbirds.
