We Can Do This Every Day
Is anyone else excited to try this? And we want to do it so badly. Can you remember watching the Memphis Belle and thinking how it would feel if you can actually experience going on a bombing mission like those during World War 2? It would be equal part scary and exhilarating for sure.
Fun Fact: There’s a poem by Randall Jarrell called “The Death of the Ball Turret Gunner.”
What would you do if we tell you that there’s an immersive condensed training program that lets you shoot .50 cal as a waist gunner or drop dummy bombs? You’d say it’s crazy but it’s real. The Bomber Camp located in Stockton, California is the place to be for all aviation enthusiasts. Registration for this year’s Class 44-8 is still ongoing and the event will be from May 30 to June 1. It’s a lot like an all-access ticket to history – you get to relive it without any danger.
Think about it, if watching a classic warplane fly by is already awesome, what more if you can get on it and fly on a mission?
