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 !!!!

Collings Foundation

Plainly put, the Collings Foundation would not exist without the dedicated help of our volunteers. Whether they are “manning” the PX as a part of the nationwide bomber tour, turning wrenches on one of our many planes, maintaining support equipment for airplanes such as the F-4, or answering the phones and pushing papers in the office; their time and talents are the treasure that keeps the Foundation going.

Every time a Collings Foundation engine is heard overhead, remember that it is there because of the thousands of hours our volunteers put in throughout the year. Like the dedicated crews in WWII, Korea, and Vietnam, they stand-by and support the aircraft without complaint.

We extend a heart-felt thank you to all of our volunteers.

We are always looking for volunteers to help. Below are some of our volunteer opportunities that you may be able to help with:

  • Become a local tour stop coordinator, or help a coordinator on a B-17 and B-24 tour stop in your local area.
  • The Collings Foundation Houston, TX base is continually looking for people to help support the many restorations and aircraft that they care for. If you are interested, please contact Rick Harris.
  • Limited slots for volunteers on the B-17 and B-24 tour are available. Please email your interest toinfo@collingsfoundation.org with a brief introduction and list of skills.
  • The Stow, MA Headquarters of the Collings Foundation has some volunteer slots available on a limited basis, please email us at info@collingsfoundation.org for information.
