World War II Planes Coming to Capital Region
There's something a bit elusive about World War II. There aren't many veterans still around to tell their story so whenever there's a chance to witness pieces of history from so many years ago, you can't miss it!
Originally, the Massachusetts-based Collings Foundation's Wings of Freedom Tour was supposed to stop at Warren County Airport on Monday for four days. If you didn't know, no worries, the visit has been postponed until October 1-4, according to the Post Star, so you have time to plan ahead.
The tour plans to fly four warplanes from World War II to the airport: a Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress, a Consolidated B-24J Liberator, a North American B-25 Mitchell, and a North American TP-51C Mustang. They're some of the only of their kind still flying, some even being the last of their kind. This year will mark the 29th year of the Collings Foundation bringing World War II aircraft to airports around the country.
