If you’ve ever dreamed of flying high in a craft made famous during the daring missions of World War II, you now have a chance to do it.

The B-17 Aluminum Overcast Tour kicks off on Aug. 16 in Waukegan, Illinois. The Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) will bring a fully-functional B-17G to Waukegan National Airport for ground-based walk-around tours, and hourly mission flights through Aug. 18. 

The Aluminum Overcast is a beautifully restored B-17 Flying Fortress that’s been a staple of air shows for many years. Based in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, the plane will tour the eastern half of the U.S. through November, with ticket sales supporting the ongoing maintenance and operations cost for one of the last 10 remaining B-17’s in the world that are still airworthy.

Flight tickets can be ordered online via the EAA website.
