I flew on a WWII Bomber, and it's an experience I'll never forget

It’s easy to get frustrated by traffic, bad coffee and slow internet speeds - but a recent experience at the Museum of Flight in Seattle reinforced my feelings of how lucky we are to live in 2017, instead of 1944.

A squadron of World War II airplanes recently touched down at Boeing field, and tours were offered on the historic aircraft to the general public. There was even a chance to go on flights around the city!

The planes, including a P-51 Mustang, B-25 Bomber, B-17 Flying Fortress and an extremely rare B-24, belong to the Collings Foundation Wings of Freedom Tour.

Collings brings this traveling museum all over the USA to teach the public about the bravery and sacrifice of WWII vets. I got a chance to go for a ride in one of the aircraft and it’s something I’ll never forget.

Take a look at the video above to see these warbirds in action!
