Stinson 2.jpgTake a Flight into History

Imagine it is 1945 and you are flying low and slow over Germany as part of the advancing American Army spotting for the artillery or scouting out German defenses on the Rhine.  While you will not be flying over Germany, you can fly in an authentic World War II Warbird that did. The Commemorative Air Force (CAF) Joe Foss Squadron gives you an opportunity to fly in the backseat of our L-5 Sentinel plane.   

A history flight is a great opportunity for those interested in aviation, military history, or as a gift.  Your pilot will be Colonel Gregory W. Lair, who is the Director of Joint Operations and Training for the 114th Fighter Wing, Joe Foss Field, Sioux Falls. Colonel Lair is a Command Pilot with over 3,400 military flying hours. He has over 262 combat hours flying 71 missions.  You will be in great hands with Col. Lair.  To read his full biography click here
