Bombing Campaign of WWII and the post-war movies
that made it an icon, the B-17 flies proudly
across the United States with its companion,
the B-24 Liberator on a mission of peace and
remembrance. No longer avoiding anti-aircraft
fire or the terror of enemy fighters, the B-17
stands as a living history exhibit for the nation
as it flies on the annual Wings of Freedom Tour
into over 130 cities annually.
of only ten B-17s still flying in the United
States, the rare B-17 gives the citizens of
the communities it visits a chance see how it
was like so long ago. It gives our WWII veterans
the chance to talk about their experiences with
a backdrop that brings their stories alive and
educates a generation that may have never heard
of their experiences as they fought for freedom.
This education ensures that the sacrifices of
our veterans will never be forgotten as long
as our children have the chance to learn with
the B-17 and B-24.
