Greatest Generation Aircraft 30-minute Flight Experience, From $99

This non-profit operation out of Fort Worth, Texas, aims to preserve a little slice of aviation history by offering regular citizens the chance to experience the thrill of flying in vintage wartime planes that have been restored to their original, flight-ready condition. The fleet includes a C3/C47 Southern Cross and a B25 Pacific Prowler, and these planes are the real-deal. They’re the very same war birds your grandpa and his buddies flew during World War II, and while you will likely never be as hardcore as they were, here’s your chance to fully appreciate their brand of badass-ness for at least 30-minutes. After that, you can go back to worrying about your Twitter and your sparkling water and whatnot.
