Hello Omaha! ...

Thank you Civil Air Patrol for coming out to help. You make a positive difference at all of the Wings of Freedom Tour stops we see you at. We appreciate everything you do! ...

If you are attending EAA AirVenture Oshkosh next week, you won't want to miss seeing our newly restored and FLYING Grumman F6F-3N Hellcat that will be featured at Warbirds in Review on Wednesday, July 24th at 10:00am in Warbird Alley! It is a fantastic way to see the newest addition to our flying collection! See: www.eaa.org/eaa/event/Warbirds_in_Review-HellcatBearcat?id=9180B94F776B462F88199918341C9A78 ...

Almost there Columbus! ...

Farewell Karney, NE. ETA Columbus, NE around 1:45 PM ...

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 to info@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.
