The Liberty Foundation invited members of the media to Tampa Executive airport to get the chance of a lifetime to fly in a Boeing B-17 that was used in the movie "Memphis Belle."

This P-51 Mustang will be available for rides at Tampa Executive Airport this weekend.

On Saturday and Sunday, rides will be open to the public at the airport, located near the Florida State Fairgrounds.

If that's a bit steep for your wallet, there will be be free ground tours in the afternoon.
