Fly in an Air Force WWII Plane During Evansville’s Extended Warbird Weekend
There's really only one way to experience what it was like to fly in a plane during WWII, and that's to actually fly in one! The excitement about the Warbird Weekend has spread so fast, that the planes are now flying in on Wednesday, July 7, 2021. This will allow for more flight times, but they are filling up quickly.

I had the opportunity to tour the Evansville Wartime Museum, and I learned a lot about Evansville's rich history in the war.
