      EVENT DETAILS
      Wings of Freedom Tour Presented by Frontiers of Flight Museum March 23-27

      The Frontiers of Flight Museum, 6911 Lemmon Ave. at the southeast corner of Love Field Airport, will host an exciting, once-in-a-lifetime flying experience and exhibit that’s sure to be a crowd pleaser for the whole family! The museum will feature the Collings Foundation’s Wings of Freedom Tour in Dallas March 23-27 in honor of our WWII Veterans.

      The Wings of Freedom Tour, Presented by the Frontiers of Flight Museum, will bring extremely rare bomber and fighter aircraft to North Texas for a local living history exhibit as part of 110-city nationwide tour. Best of all, visitors at the Frontiers of Flight Museum will not only get a chance to view the interactive display, they will actually have an opportunity to “fly into history” aboard these legendary aircraft.

      Aviation enthusiasts of all ages will be “flying high” when they see the vintage Boeing B-17 “Flying Fortress” Nine-O-Nine WWII Heavy Bomber, Consolidated B-24J “Liberator” Witchcraft, the B-25J “Mitchell” Tondelayo and the P-51C “Mustang” Betty Jane, known as one of the greatest piston-engine fighters ever built.

      The Wings of Freedom Tour at the Frontiers of Flight Museum will offer participants bragging rights to explore these majestic aircraft inside and out and learn more about these unique and rare treasures of aviation history. The B-17 is one of only 10 in flying condition in the United States, and the B-24J is the sole remaining example of its type flying in the world.

      This year, the B-25 will join the collection of restored vintage bombers to soar over Dallas skies more than 50 years after its service life. The B-25 gained a lasting place in aviation history as the aircraft used in the Doolittle Raid, the first American attack made on the Japanese mainland after the attack on Pearl Harbor.
