    Anybody done the B-17 ride out of Appleton?

    How tough is it to book in week? I know they are pre-selling now, but it's a pretty chunk of non-refundable change, I'd rather book on site. How fast does it fill up?

    If memory serves, and 2019 was a looong time ago for my aged brain, I 'think' they were fully booked by show week Thursday? Yankee Lady carries 12 passengers per flight, several flights a per day, but weather is a monkey-wrench factor NOBODY can guarantee. Get a hunch and bet a bunch? Hopefully someone who works that booth can chime in with facts rather than my guess.

    The 5-10 day weather forecast 'should' be a pretty solid guide to buying earlier rather than taking a chance later on the rides being sold out. This year it looks like the B-25 will also be operating rides. And there is always my favorite, a ride in one of the tri-motors. Worth every penny IMHO to be on that piece of aviation history.
