The Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress “Nine O Nine” World War II heavy bomber, Consolidated B-24 Liberator “Witchcraft” World War II heavy bomber and North American P-51 Mustang will be on display.
The B-17 is one of only nine in flying condition in the United States today and the B-24 and P-51 Mustang are the “sole remaining examples of their type flying in the world,” according to The Collings Foundation-Wings of Freedom Tour.
