MEDFORD, Ore. -- The non-profit organization called the Liberty Foundation offered 10 or 20 minute rides in a WWII era plane at the Rogue Valley International-Medford Airport Sunday. It is the most recognized WWII fighter aircraft. One 10 minute ride cost nearly $1,200 while a 20 minute ride cost nearly $2,000. Pilot Bill Shepard this is a great opportunity for people in the area to experience a piece of history.

“Men and women actually flew this aircraft in service to our country and to be able to be in their shoes and be able to experience what they experienced is a once and a lifetime opportunity for me and for anyone else who wants to book a ride in that aircraft," said Shepard.

If you missed the opportunity to ride in that plane, the tour isn't over but it is leaving the rogue valley. The plane's next stop will be in the Chico and Redding areas.
