World War II-era aircraft, including a rare Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress and other bombers and fighters, will be on display at the San Marcos Municipal Airport March 26 through March 28.
The Collings Foundation’s Wings of Freedom Tour says the B-17 is one of only 10 in flying condition in the United States and that its B-24J Liberator and P-51C Mustang are the only remaining, operable aircraft of their type in the world. The display also includes a Huey helicopter from the Vietnam War era.
Admission is $12 for adults and $6 for children under 12. World War II veterans get in free. The tour also sells rides on the aircraft starting at $425 for a half-hour on a bomber to $3,200 for an hour on a P-51 Mustang.
The fleet will arrive at the airport at 2 p.m. Monday, March 26 and will be on display through noon Wednesday, March 28. For information, call 1-800-568-8924.Email | Print
