This C-47 changed the course of mankind, and was restored to past glory after being rescued from an airplane boneyard in Wisconsin.

Tours of the static aircraft will be available for a nominal fee of $5 for those ages 7 and up. Children 6 and under free.

The show also features aerobatics performed by pilot Kate Kyer in her Pitts S-2B.
