Do you love aviation? Would you enjoy getting up close and personal with vintage aircraft? Then this event is for you.
The Collings Foundation is bringing the Wings of Freedom Tour to the Arcata-Eureka Airport over June 12 through 14, 2017. The tour features vintage aircraft, including a B24 Liberator and the renowned B17 “Flying Fortress” of World War II. A P-51C Mustang was also recently added to the lineup.
Tickets for the event cost $15 for adults and $5 for children (12 and under). Walk through tour times are as follows:
- 6/12/2017 – 1:00 PM till 5:00 PM
- 6/13/2017 – 9:00 AM till 5:00 PM
- 6/14/2017 – 9:00 AM till 12:00 PM
No reservations are needed. The address of the event location puts it across the road from the airport.
You can also book a short flight in some the aircraft, but it is very pricey. A 30-minute flight in one of the bombers starts at $450 per person. A training flight in the Mustang will run you $2,200 to $3,200. But if you’re made of cash, you can reserve a flight spot by calling (978) 562-9182.
