‘Tis the season for holiday lights! If you and your family are tired of the same holiday venues year after year, why not give them the opportunity to see the lights from Santa’s perspective? Yes, from the air!

My family had an opportunity to see the beautiful lights from the sky on an old World War II DC-3 plane that’s operated by Greatest Generation Aircraft at Fort Worth’s Meacham Airport. Unlike commercial airplanes, we were encouraged to get up, walk the plane, and visit the cockpit after lifting off. From the sky, we flew over the high rises in downtown Fort Worth, Cowboys Stadium, and Six Flags.

This event proved to be a tremendous history lesson for all of us (and reminded us what our veterans did to secure our freedom). While in the aircraft, we noticed several words inscribed in the interior of the plane. Some dated back to 1943! In addition, there were holes (for guns) in the windows where we playfully placed our hands thru while flying through the air. Though we had to wear headsets (due to noise), we were free to wander up and down the plane.

Though the $75/ person deal is over, they will honor the discounted price (normally $200) if you mention my blog from DFW Mama. Flights leave from Meacham Airport’s Vintage Flying Museum’s Hangar (which houses several other vintage aircrafts) and all proceeds go to the restoration/ maintenance of these historic planes.
