If you’re a real history buff, you're guaranteed to love taking a ride in these two airplanes that played a vital role in the Defence Force during the mid-20th Century.

Fancy something a little more adrenaline pumping? Ask your pilot to do some aerobatic maneuvers such as loops and rolls, or feel the rush of a Top Gun of the 1940s and ‘50s and see the world from a different perspective with some G loading (if desired).
