Wings of Freedom Tour Flying Back Into Barnstable

HYANNIS – The Wings of Freedom Tour will return to Cape Cod this weekend, bringing four World War II era fighter planes and bombers to Barnstable Municipal Airport in Hyannis.

The tour, sponsored by the Collings Foundation, features a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress heavy bomber, North American B-25 Mitchell, Consolidated B-24 Liberator heavy bomber and a P-51 Mustang fighter, which the public is welcome to tour, touch, and even take a ride in.

The B-17 is one of only eight in flying condition in the country, while the B-24 and P-51C are the sole remaining examples still flying.

The Wings of Freedom Tour will arrive at Barnstable Municipal Airport at 2 PM on Friday and will stay through the weekend. Tour hours are from 2-5 p.m. on Friday and from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

“This gives people an interesting perspective of what it must have been like for a young army air corps members during World War II. That’s what we strive to do,” said Hunter Chaney, the Director of Marketing for the Wings of Freedom Tour.

“These are flying interactive memorials for our World War II veterans,” Chaney added.

Admission is just $15, $5 for children under 12 years old, and WWII Veterans may tour the aircraft at no cost. Prices for 30 minute flights varying depending on the aircraft.
