    Lack a fear of heights? Great!

    Climb aboard an open-air cockpit biplane with Blue Ridge Biplanes and soar above the forested Blue Ridge Mountains of the Shenandoah Valley for the quintesstial bird's eye view. Flights are about $400 for an hour-long trip (for up to two people).

    If you'd prefer your knuckles to be whiter, then go with the Ultimate Acro (25 minutes, $400). It'll twist and turn you with immelmans, hammerheads and other kinds of fancily exciting plane lingo.  Don't worry, this ride comes with a parachute!

    Call (540) 937-5371 to schedule a ride. Your flight will leave from 12517 Beverly Ford Road, Brandy Station, Va., about an hour and a half from downtown D.C.
