WWII Bombardier Targets Aerial Tour

This unique tour takes you back in time to get an up close view of a World War II bombardier training mission, last seen over 70 years ago. You will fly over the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks National Monument and see the giant bombing targets bladed into the desert. They resemble bull’s eyes or alien crop circles. The targets were part a former training program essential to helping America win World War II. In 1942, twenty-four targets were built in the desert to train. Seven of the targets were built in the Organ Mountains-Desert Peaks. Each target consists of four concentric rings, the outermost being 1000 feet in diameter.
