War-movie buffs can step inside five military aircraft they’ve only seen pictured in films, including Tora! Tora! Tora!, Memphis Belle, Red Tails, Pearl Harbor and Apocalypse Now, and learn the real stories of these pieces of aviation history. There’ll be three World War II bombers (Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, Consolidated B-24 Liberator and North American B-25 Mitchell), a WWII fighter (North American P-51 Mustang) and a Vietnam-era Huey helicopter. Visitors are invited to explore the aircraft inside and out; those with deep affection and even deeper pockets can take a 30-minute flight in one.

View rare WWII bomber and fighter aircraft in this living history exhibit which stops at the Frontiers of Flight Museum as part of a 110-city nationwide tour. Visitors will not only get a chance to view the interactive displays, they will actually have an opportunity to fly aboard these legendary aircraft. There will be special guests, reenactors and activities for the kids.

Aircraft: Boeing B-17G "Flying Fortress," Consolidated B-24J "Liberator," North American B-25 "Mitchell," North American TF-51D "Mustang."

Walk Through Tour: March 13, 2-4 p.m. and March 14-17, 10 a.m.-4 p.m. $15 / $7 for children younger than 12.
