SLIDESHOW: B-25 Bomber At Felts Field This Weekend

Posted: Updated:
SPOKANE, Wash. -

If you've ever thought to yourself, "I'd sure like to take a ride in a WWII B-25 bomber!" Well, you're in luck this weekend! During "Felts Field Neighbor Day," Historic Flight is offering rides on "Grumpy," the oldest and busiest B-25 bomber in the country.

Based out of Everett, "Grumpy" will be on display to the public throughout the weekend and paid flights can be arranged through Historic Flight, the company that owns "Grumpy."

Historic Flight also brought its WWII Spitfire fighter plane, but that will only be on display from 9am-4pm on Saturday. 

Historic Flight was founded by Spokane Local, John Sessions, an attorney and graduate of Shadle Park High School. He operates the collection and restoration center out of an Everett hangar. 

The arrival of the B-25 is the second time in a month that Felts Field has seen a World War II bomber. A B-17 known as the Memphis Belle was in Spokane in early May. Aviation enthusiasts will have the opportunity see many planes, as well as ride in the B-25. Rides are $450 per flight and will be available through Sunday at Felts Field. 

Call Historic Flights at (425) 348-3200 to schedule a flight.
