Pilot David Mars was giving 15 minute rides around Oxford on Monday in a restored 1929 Curtiss- Wright Travel Air. Departing to and from Ole Miss airport, the 1929 Travel Air is an open cockpit biplane that some might recognize from World War II.

The plane holds three people –  two passengers sit in the front cockpit, and the pilot flies from the back. The plane is light on controls and carries six hours of fuel, according to Nostalgicwings.com.
