So this video is a touch old BUT it is the same planes and many of the same guys that will be in Wendover for Pilot camp in September! The added bonus is that you will be ON BASE, IN THE BARRACKS, IN THE HANGAR, where the greatest generation were - this is really the opportunity to "Walk where they walked" and you will FLY WHERE THEY FLEW!
