Four aircraft from the days of the Second World War are at the airport and are available for viewing and for riding. The show includes a B-17-G Flying Fortress, a B-24 Liberator, a B-25 Mitchell like the ones first used off an air craft carrier to bomb Tokyo in 1942, and a P-51 Mustang, one of the most celebrated fighters of World War II.
These aircraft all belong to the Collings Foundation Wing’s of Freedom program. The admission fee is a mere $15 per person and it entitles you to climb into some of the bombers. The show also offers interested people the chance to take a flight in one of these historic aircraft and already several people have done so.
