Wings of Freedom Tour goes to Pensacola

Pensacola, FLORIDA — The public can tour and — for a price — even fly in some historic World War II-era aircraft from March 5-7.

The Wings of Freedom Tour will be at the Pensacola Aviation Center at Pensacola International Airport.

The aircraft that will be on display are the Boeing B-17Flying Fortress,” Consolidated B-24 Liberator, and North American P-51 Mustang.

The national tour, now in its 23rd year, is sponsored by the Collings Foundation, a nonprofit educational group that supports “living history” exhibits. The tour usually visits 110 cities each year.

The cost to tour the aircraft is $12 regular admission and $6 for children 11 and younger. Tour hours are 2 to 5 p.m. on March 5; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on March 6; and 9 a.m. through noon on March 7.

A 30-minute flight aboard the B-17 or the B-24 is $425. A 30-minute flight aboard the P-51 Mustang is $2,200.
