Intensley moving. Especially for one who does not understand the concept of war. What a great travesty of humanity but necessary at the time. An experience that I will never forget and hopefully will always appreciate. Thank you Papa.

Phenomenal experience...great history lesson...but with the actual huge planes in front of you...and wonderful volunteers to tell you actual stories. Plus it brings to life how brave these young men were and the sacrifice they made so we could live in freedom.

It’s more about their height and ability to manage the controls. Age isn’t a criteria. To be able to see properly, I’d say 4’8” and up. And probably around the ages of 6+ can follow the controls
