Mustering with your fellow recruits in the cool morning air at Stockton Airport you will be met by base personnel and transported back in time to 1944 as a cadet at the Stockton Field Air Corps Advanced Flying School, where you will experience some of the sights, sounds and smells that few others have known.The morning session starts with indoctrination followed by classes where you will learn about aerial gunnery and the duties of the bombardier. After a GI lunch you will fly a mission over the California Central Valley, with the Sierra Mountains as backdrop, in your choice of the two most celebrated bombers of WWII: the Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress and the Consolidated B-24J Liberator.

While waiting for your mission you will participate in additional ground training, including fire fighting, radio operation, first aid, and ball turret operation. After learning about each crew position you can try them out yourself, in flight.
