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.

Can you hit the target? Come to Bomber Camp and find out.
