Though no one could ever take Betty Jane's place in my heart, Toulouse Nuts is slowly becoming a favorite of mine 💕
Which Wings of Freedom tour aircraft is your favorite? Tell me about it :)

With only two weeks remaining, one would think the Wings of Freedom tour would be winding down. However, we are already excitedly planning for what's to come on the 2017 tour!
What were your favorite tour stops this year? Where would you like to see us visit next year?
I hope to see you in the next weeks, but if not I sure hope you'll come visit us on the road next year!!

Hi All! Hunter here from the Foundation. That time of year again where I start to put together the yearly magazine. Have a 2016 photo from a Collings event you would like published? I will be selecting a few over the next couple days. Email ONE picture with a short description to: hchaney@collingsfoundation.org ...

We've made it to North Carolina & by the weekend we'll be heading to South Carolina. With less than three weeks of the 2016, most of the crew is counting down the days until our winter break. On the other hand, I'm just getting started & I'm beyond excited for 2017!!

We before it's all over, we'll be visiting Georgia and Alabama, then head home for a couple of stops in Florida. Make sure you come see us soon, I know I'm looking forward to it!

Thank you for your assistance in promoting the Wings of Freedom Nationwide Tour: A living history display of the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, Consolidated B-24 Liberator, and North American B-25 Mitchell… America’s backbone bomber aircraft of World War II.

Sixty years after their use over the skies of enemy territory, they embark on a new mission over the skies of America to honor our veterans of World War II, promote education of our future generations about the role of the aircraft and the flight crews of World War II, and to preserve these treasures of American aviation history where they belong: the sky.
