LYNCHBURG, Va. – Do you want to take to the sky in a piece of history? 

Two World War II planes will be at the Lynchburg Regional Airport through Sunday as a part of the National Warplane Museum's "Living History Flight Experience."

Both the C-47 "Whiskey 7," which actually flew over the beaches of Normandy on D-Day, and the iconic WWII B-17 "The Movie Memphis Belle" bomber will be available for people to ride in. 

You can ride in the C-47 for $95, and rides in the B-17 start at $450 to sit in the crew station. If you want to sit in the bombardier, navigator or engineer station, it costs $650. 

Flights last around 30 minutes, and Federal Aviation Administration regulations allow you to move around in the flight once you're in the air.
