A piece of history is visiting the Tulsa Air and Space Museum this weekend.

Built in 1937, you can tour a Douglas DC-3 aircraft named the Flagship Detroit.

It's one of the original flagship planes American Airlines bought back in the 30s.

After 18 different owners, the plane is completely restored and looks exactly how it did in 1937.

"They have a lot of pictures and history, so you get a history lesson on the Flagship Detroit just by stepping on board, having a seat while it's safely on the ground, and just take it all in. It's stepping back in time," said TASM Executive Director Tonya Blansett.

For $100, you can actually take a ride in the Flagship Detroit.

You have until 4:00 Saturday to check out the exhibit.
