Ok ok guess what? Today while my mom was driving me to my diner http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/shady.gif http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/blush.gif I heard a thing on the radio about for christmas how you could fly in a World war 2 fighter

My eyes opened BIG http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif But I wasn't paying attention and I didin't manage to find out where and when its being help at http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

But if one of you would like one of those REAL moments instead of the game you better get yo butts to wherever the place is

I think they also said if your old enough you can FLY the plane (With co-pilot Prob.) http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/25.gif

Considering they usually charge over a thousand just to ride (let alone let you take the controls), I can't imagine it being for free anywhere. They cost a fortune both in running time and downtime/maintenance.

Here's an example

Cost me over a grand to go for an hour's flight in an Extra 300 where I actually did do the flying (with the pilot in the rear, me in the front-dual controls). The adventure lasted most of the day.

Here's one for just over $200 where it's only a 15 minute you-don't-get-to-control it and it's in a Texan/Harvard. Still a thrill no matter how you look at it.

U.K. price where you CAN pilot it is 400pounds ($800 or so)

Here was one this past summer at Tallahassee $950 in a mustang.

Good luck if you do find the answer to your question.
