Military Veterans, Seniors Given Rides in 1943 Biplane

Posted: Updated:

Several area military veterans and seniors were given rides in an open cockpit biplane at the Carson City Airport on Thursday morning. 

The flights were courtesy of a non-profit called Ageless Aviation Dreams Foundation. Since 2011, volunteer pilots have given more than 3,200 flights. Thursday’s flight featured a 1943 Boeing Stearman – the same aircraft used to train military aviators during World War II.
