Four vintage warplanes have landed in Colorado Springs, and you have two chances this week to check them out yourself.

The planes are on display at the Colorado Jet Center, located at 1575 Aviation Way near the Colorado Springs Airport.

A non-profit group called Commemorative Air Force brought the planes here. The group includes a B-24, one of only two still flying, and FIFI -- the only B-29 super fortress still flying today.

The planes will be here through Wednesday night. You can check them out on Tuesday, August 20 and Wednesday, August 21 from 9 a.m. to 6:30 p.m.

It costs $10 per person to get in. The price is $20 for mom, dad and kids 17 and under.

Children age 10 and under get in free. 

B-29 cockpit tours are free with paid admission.  The tours are only available when the aircraft is not in motion. This is generally from 12:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. each day that ride flights occur and 9:00 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. other days.

The B-29 will fly at 9:00 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday. Other aircraft fly on demand throughout the event.

Ride prices start at $65 for the C-45 and $595 for the B-29. B-24 rides are $399.

There is a discount if rides are purchased online.
