Get your hands on history with the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) at Sun ‘n Fun when you take a ride in one of CAF’s vintage warbirds.
Historic aircraft from the CAF fleet will be on display and available for rides at Sun ‘n Fun in Lakeland, Florida, April 21-26. The CAF Ride Program offers people a once-in-a-lifetime experience of flight in some the most historically significant aircraft of American military aviation, according to CAF officials.
Rides can be purchased in the CAF’s P-51D Mustang “Red Nose” (pictured), B-24A Liberator “Ol’927,” and B-25 “Yellow Rose.” Passengers will have an opportunity to attend a passenger briefing and personal introduction to the aircraft. Flight time is 20 to 30 minutes depending on the aircraft.
On display at the fly-in will be the CAF Dixie Wing’s SBD-5 Dauntless, one of only two currently flying in the world; the CAF Memphis Squadron’s Hawker Sea Fury FB.11; and the CAF Florida Wing’s two L-17 Navions, “Allie-Gator” and “Misty Blue.” Other CAF and CAF member-owned aircraft also will be on display.
B-24A Liberator rides are $450, B-25 rides are $375 and P-51D Mustang rides are $1,195. Rides are limited and subject to weather.
