Wings of Freedon Tour - July 20-22, 2018

ag-day If you were lucky enough to visit Spirit Airport this past Memorial Day, you were able to see some of the unique training aircraft that taught our pilots how to fly in WWII. Well, now you will have an opportunity to view some of the key aircraft that they were training for!?

The Collings Foundation based in Stow, Mass will be bringing a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, Consolidated B-24 Liberator (the only one with combat history left flying!) North American B-25 Mitchell, and the quintessential WWII fighter, a North American P-51D Mustang to the TACAir ramp the weekend of July 20 - 22, 2018. All aircraft will arrive on Friday July 20th and offer tours and ride opportunities throughout the weekend. Please see attached flyer for hours of operation and ride information. This is a unique chance to see four of the most pivotal aircraft of WWII up close and personal! So please plan to visit, and bring your kids and grandkids!? Click Image to Enlarge.

Dave Brown was the winner of the Warbird give-away. He's still trying to figure out what that spinning thing is on the front of the aircraft as Dave is well known for his hanger full of jets.
