FARMINGDALE - Long Islanders have a chance to see the world from a last-of-its kind World War II plane this weekend.
The B-24 Liberator is the only B-24 bomber still maintained to fly, and the piece of history is available for public flights this weekend.
News 12's Eileen Lehpamer went up with six World War II veterans, two of them former B-24 pilots themselves. They sat strapped to the floor in the back of the plane, beneath the machine guns.
The veterans, all around 93 years old, were excited and nostalgic to be back up in the B-24. They snapped photos and selfies and they reminisced about the times they flew at much higher altitudes, facing much more danger.
The B-24 will be at the American Airpower Museum at Republic Airport all weekend, and members of the public can pay for a flight. Flights are available on other World War II planes as well.
