If you mean the MAAM's P-61, they have to finish restoring it first

Response to I wonder if they'll offer flights in the P-61. That's what I'm saving for! nt.

You can see the latest info on the project here: http://www.maam.org/p61.html

For the past couple of years, they've been stuck at the point of having the central pod, wings and engine booms assembled. The aircraft has been on display under a pavillion at the annual World War II Weekend at the museum. It's been pretty cool to look at, and I've taken lots of photos. But now they're at the stage of restoring or replacing a lot of smaller bits and pieces, and doing that manually, and it's taking longer than projected.

But I agree--it would be very cool to go up in the P-61 and see what things look like.

I'd like to ride on the large bombers, too, but I would really like to ride along in the Avenger. I've been going to the WWII Weekend for about 10 years or so, and though they fly the Avenger in the re-enactments, they haven't taken any passengers up, as far as I know. The last time I built a model of one, I really wanted to see what the view was like from within an Avenger.
