MICHIGAN’S LARGEST HISTORIC PLANE RIDE DESTINATION

Yankee Air Museum’s historic plane rides feature the B-17 Yankee Lady and B-25 Yankee Warrior bombers, the C-47 Hairless Joe Skytrain, the UH-1 Huey, and the Ford 4-AT-B Trimotor.

Guests can learn about the unique history behind each aircraft and also take a ride in them to fully experience what it was like to fly during those time periods.
