WWII B-17 bomber offering rides over South Jersey

Posted: Updated:

There may be an interesting sight in the air over South Jersey as area residents have the chance to take flight on one of World War II's flying fortresses...

The "Yankee Lady", a B-17 bomber from World War II, is not only on display at the Naval Air Station Wildwood Aviation Museum in Cape May County, but you can also go for a ride aboard the bomber.

Volunteers with the Yankee Air Museum in Michigan fly the plane in air shows and sell rides on it to cover the $2,500 an hour it costs to have it in the air.

This is one of only about ten B-17's left in the country.
