Several vintage WWII planes are making their way to the River City earlier than expected due to the high demand for flights from Evansville-area residents, according to the Evansville Wartime Museum.
The Evansville Wartime Museum says the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) will now be flying into Evansville on the evening of Wednesday, July 7.
With the early arrival of the warbirds, flights will now be available on Thursday, and additional flights have been added for Friday.
A limited number of flights are available. Seats start at $380 on the T6, $495 on the B17, and $100 on the Twin Beech, but can be more expensive depending on which seats you choose.
The weekend event is hosted by the Evansville Wartime Museum and will run through Sunday afternoon. Also on display during the event will be the hometown favorite P-47 Thunderbolt "Hoosier Spirit II" and a Stearman aircraft.
Those who don't wish to fly could instead participate in ground tours from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, excluding flying times.
Admission to the event is $20 per person and includes full admission to the museum and on-board tours of the visiting warbirds. Passengers purchasing flights will also need to pay admission into the museum.
