The Wings of Freedom Tour will be displaying an exceptionally rare collection of aircraft from the World War II era, including the last still-flying B-24 bomber and a P-51 fighter, at Venice Municipal Airport from Jan. 23 to 26. The event was created by the Collings Foundation, a Massachusetts-based nonprofit that works to honor veterans and educate Americans about aviation history.
Visitors are invited to explore the aircraft inside and out. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for children under 12. Thirty-minute flights aboard these exceptional airplanes are also available. Flights on the B-24 are $475 a person, while the P-51 flight costs $2,400 for a half hour and $3,400 for a full hour. For reservations and information on the flight experiences, call (800) 568-8924.
