I can still feel my adrenaline pumping from the ride. It’s hard to imagine how it might have felt to pilot these planes during a real war on these beautiful pacific islands, but I’ve left the day with a better understanding of the attack and what it was like to be in the air in 1941.

My dad kept talking about the experience which genuinely expressed his aviation delight and with the whole event. We really appreciated your professionalism and warm demeanor during the entire flight. Thank you for offering such a warbird experience.
The aircraft is in immaculate condition - I dread to think how many hours you've put into its upkeep. I shall treasure the flight for years to come. My wife says the smile on my face after the flight was quite a sight, and I probably haven't lost it yet.
Thank you for the unforgettable experience and hospitality. It was the highlight of our trip to O‘ahu. From the minute we got to the airport, it was as if we stepped back in time. Your attention to detail is fantastic. Mahalo.
My father-in-law truly enjoyed himself and was visibly moved by the whole experience. He kept saying that it was one of the best experiences he's had and will remember for the rest of his life!
I am already trying to figure out a reason to get back to Hawai‘i for another ride.
I want to thank you again for an unforgettable experience. It was more than I could have asked for.
