Loudest #$%#$ing airplane in the world.  Flew one from MSP to SFO for Doolittle's birthday... he was 90 I think... way back when.   Every guy that ever flew one has one thing in common, they all left part of their hearing in the cockpit when they left.

They had a B-17 and a B-24 there as well that I got to crawl around in.  You could go up in one for a couple hundred bucks but my attention was on the P-40 and P-51 two seaters they had there.  Those were upwards of 2k to fly.  If my girlfriend hadn't just moved in I probably would have emptied my bank account to make that happen.  Instead, logic and responsibility prevailed and I'll just have to save up for next time.

Get a ride in a T-6 or Stearman...for about $250 - $350 just as good.  When I was flying them we could not get people to give us $50 for gas much less the prices they get today.
