Another beauty we pulled out this morning - 1928 Packard Model 533. This is the first classic car Bob Collings bought - the rest is history! Fist time this car has seen the sun in a long time. ...

Donation: $2500.00
Benefits: Name, Bomb Group, Bomb Squadron placed in DFC Section on aircraft; Opportunity for a two between-cities flight experiences with a guest.

As a Distinguished Flying Command member, you will be part of a very appreciated group of members that help keep the aircraft operating for future generations. Your donation helps keep the day-to-day operations costs down, leaving more for continued restoration and heavy maintenance that becomes needed with age. Being a Distinguished Flying Command member carries a great set of privilages that also benefit. You will have your name placed in the DFC section of either the B-17 or B-24 (bomb bay doors of the B-17, or rear fuselage of the B-24) along with your bomb group (if applicable) and squadron (if applicable). Memorial names in place of the donor name are also available and encouraged to honor a loved one. In addition, DFC members are also allowed the chance to fly as our guest on one city-to-city flight with a guest as part of their contribution.

The Distinguished Flying Command section is always a frequently visited memorial at our aircraft. The names are read by millions who visit the aircraft and many times there are names of friends, fellow servicemen, and crew that are recognized. Many times this leads to a reunion that will bring people together. For loved ones who have passed on, their names will continue to fly with the aircraft for many years as memorial and honor to their life and their service protecting the freedom that is so precious.

There are many ways of donating to become a Distingushed Flying Command member, one for every budget. You can donate in one sum or as an installment over a term (please note that privilages begin once half the total is paid and a consistant plan is arranged). You may also apply up to 2 past flight experiences to your total as well. We also accept donations of appreciated stock to apply toward a DFC membership. For an easy single online transaction click here. Once we recieve your information we will call you to confirm and – most certainly – with a big thank you!
