    If you like to give really unusual gifts, this would be it, in my opinion!

    You can pay for a ride on a B24 liberator plane for $450!

    You spend 30 min in the air under 10,000 feet elevation in an open air, unpressurized cabin.

    Not a practical gift for many, but I can think of a few people who would truly LOVE this if I could afford it as a gift for them.

    Talk about an amazing experience!!

    We live close to the Chino Air Museum which SO loves - and funny enough that ride in that plane his Birthday present this year from me. Don't know how he is going to manage to get in it LOL but ever since he started volunteering there years ago he has talked about it.

    Yes, it's the add-ons that get you ... neat idea, though.

    How do you find these things?

    I'll stick with-the BMW racing course. It's expensive but valuable for learning and practice. Besides, I get sick on planes ... :imok:

    Is that the vomit comet?

    I actually might like that! I adore planes. I have flown in everything from single engine prop planes to the big boys crossing the Atlantic. I had a boyfriend in HS who was a private pilot and he taught me how to fly and land a single engine because he wanted me to be able to get down just in case anything ever happened when we were up in the air.

    That is very cool!

    When I was single, I once gave I guy I was nuts about a session in a glider for his birthday. He loved it :) And when he came down he insisted I go up as well. What a rush!

    No, it's a WWII bomber. This is what happens when you're raised by a USAF officer with a WWII history fixation.
