Ford Island, seen from a 1944 Navy SNJ plane piloted by Bruce Mayes. Mayes’ company, Pacific Warbirds, offers the Pearl Harbor Aviation Experience, a two-hour trip back in time to Dec. 10, 1941. Fliers are given a debriefing—they are on a photo survey mission to assess damage of Pearl Harbor and other sites attacked on Dec. 7. “All the sites are still here and are still visible. Veterans have given me a lot of information,” says Mayes. “It’s less of a tour and more of an immersion, for people who are interested in the full story. The Arizona is only part of the story. This was a two-hour timeframe that changed the face of the world.” The trip is $925; book at vintage-aviation.com.
