They were actually offering flights to the public, but the pricetag for a seat was about $400. It was a bit spendy for my tastes. Though they were saying that it costs about $3000 to put the plane in the air for an hour, so they were really just covering costs. I'm sure it would have been worth the cost...I just wasn't quite that interested. :) But we did get to see it fly...twice!
Meanwhile, another historic plane was nearby. This one was a PV-2 named Hot Stuff. Apparently this one is based there at Mt. Comfort. One of its curators was on hand to open it up so that people there for the B-17 could see it, too. It wasn't flying that day, but we were actually able to go inside and hear some stories from the curator.
All-in-all it was a pretty cool experience and I'm glad I had the opportunity to go. Click here for more pictures.
