A piece of World War II History makes a stop in Regina this weekend.
A Boeing B-17 bomber is in Regina and the public has a chance to take a tour of the historic plane, and can even get a ride in it.
This type of plane has a special connection to Regina, as it would have been the same type of plane Regina’s Frederick W.H. Hill would have flown during the war.
Organizers of the tour say Hill was “probably the only Canadian who ever was a command pilot on a U.S. Bomber.”
Malcolm McLeod with the Experimental Aircraft Association, encourages people to come out an experience something special.
Rides in the plane cost just over $600 and McLeod says “It’s an once in a lifetime opportunity.”
Tours of the plane are available starting at 1 and cost $10 for an individual tour or $20 per family.
The B-17 bomber’s last day in Regina is on July 3.
