Question of the Week: What was your first experience with the Collings Foundation and what motivated you to come out and see the planes or a local event we organized for the first time? Feel free to attach photos!

To start things off... here's the story of Ryan Keough, Director of Development at the Collings Foundation... "I came out to see the bombers in the first week of college in September of 1997 when they came to Daniel Webster College in Nashua, NH. I had $300 in cash that my parents gave me for books, but being a lifelong WWII history enthusiast and the opportunity to fly the LAST flying B-24 Liberator at the time was too great! I gladly traded that book money for 30 minutes aboard the B-24 in flight for a history lesson I'd never forget! I borrowed books for the first weeks of the semester, but it was all worth it! I became a wholehearted Collings Foundation supporter after that!"
