Sixty years ago they flew from bases far from home, over occupied and
enemy territory in an attempt to weaken the forces of evil so that
freedom could once
again return to the people who it was stolen from. Their endurance was
tested on missions of ten or more hours, day after day; their strength
was proven as they returned countless crews safely back to their bases.
Crews counted on them and a bond was made
between man and machine...
Now they fly on missions that are quite different than those of so long
ago. Their mission for today is to educate the world about our
courageous World War
II veterans and to remember those who have left us. These aircraft
stand as tributes to their crews and fly on as living history to
enlighten future generations.
The best way to relive this history is to take a once-in-a-lifetime flight on board the B-17, B-24 & P-51.
The Collings Foundation is proud to offer our Flight Experiences on our Wings of Freedom Tour in over 110 cities annually.
Imagine yourself soaring on board the flagships of the USAAF Strategic
Bombing fleet of WWII. Take your position in the crew and experience a
taste of what it may have been like in WWII. Sit as bombardier, stand as
waist gunner, monitor flight activity as a
flight engineer would as you observe the pilots flying the mighty
bombers. You can wander through the plane as you like.
Every flight helps to defray maintenance and operations costs for the
aircraft that have reached over $4000 per operating hour per aircraft.
Maintained to the highest standards and flown by highly experienced
pilots, our aircraft safety standards are second
Flight Experience is an exciting and historic opportunity. The B-17,
B-24 and B-25 have been known worldwide as the backbones of Allied air
power of WWII and
now is your chance to fly aboard!
