Members of the tour say the experience is something you won't find in a museum.
"Museums you can't go through them, you can't have a hands on with the exhibits at all. Here you can go through the airplanes, you can hail the machine guns, you can sit in the different seats people sat in, in WWII, get in the different positions, and it's just a wonderful experience to be able to come out and see this," said Mac Mcauley, one of the pilots on the tour.
