Take advantage of this unique, extremely rare opportunity to view the upcoming solar eclipse from an open-cockpit WW2 warplane from over a mile above the earth! Only one exclusive flight is available.

On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun. Those in Tulsa will witness the moon covering nearly 90% of the sunlight, creating an eerie, dusk-like appearance. An event like this has not happened since 1979.

One lucky passenger will strap into our 1942 WWII Army Air Force PT-19 trainer, take off from Jones Riverside Airport (KRVS) in Tulsa, Oklahoma and climb to over a mile above the earth (approximately 8,000 ft), in order to achieve a completely unrestricted view of the eclipse. Special eclipse glasses will be provided so the passenger can look directly at the sun safely.


If we receive a bid of $2,500 or more, we will take off from Sullivan, MO (KUUV) – where the eclipse coverage is 100%!
