To our dedicated Wings of Freedom Tour supporters: The 2018 Wings of Freedom Tour season will end after this weekend at Hilton Head Island, SC and will not continue through November 11th as originally planned. Some maintenance issues require attention and we will be bringing the fleet into our winter maintenance period a week early to prepare for the 2019 Wings of Freedom Tour. We will be rescheduling the Leesburg, FL visit for our 2019 tour starting in Florida in January - our 30th Anniversary Season!

We thank everyone who has visited, flown, and supported the effort this year - we truly couldn't accomplish the magnitude of our annual 110 city, ten month nationwide tour without your support!

Our winter maintenance period is very important to the long-term health of the tour – your generosity to help keep the Wings of Freedom Tour alive for our future generations is greatly appreciated. Please consider an end of the year gift to keep our work progress going over the winter. Thank you!

And on the 7th Day, God Created the F-4 Phantom and this morning he took it for a flight. Was not expecting to see this at Ellington Field this morning, hence the shaky / excited camera work. Yes, the only remaining F-4 Phantom flying in North America thanks to the Collings Foundation is Alive and Well !!!!
