Coordinator's Corner

Today is Armistice Day and I'm here with the crew at Biggin Hill. This morning Rob Collings flew our Spitfire BR601 in honor of those that serve and in remembrance of those that sacrificed so much to allow for the freedom we all enjoy today.

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.
