Rosie’s Reply. What better way to experience history in flight than to fly on a 1943-built bomber that flew missions in Sicily during World War II.
Take a ride into yesteryear on Rosie’s Reply; the B-25D is the only flying model of that aircraft today and is one of very few aircraft that experienced combat during WWII. Public rides on the B-25 are available at 10:00am until 1:00pm. The ride is a 20-minute experience and costs $475.00 per person for one of four rear-compartment seats, which also gives access to the turret and tail section. Two flight deck and nose seats are also available for $575. To reserve your seat, go to https://yankeeairmuseum.org/fly/#b25.
