Participating in the Collings Foundation's Wings of Freedom Tour, the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress "Nine O Nine" WWII Heavy Bomber, Consolidated B-24 Liberator "Witchcraft" WWII Heavy Bomber and P-51 Mustang, will fly into Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport, 5803 S. Sossaman Road in Mesa, for a visit April 18 to April 20.

This is a rare opportunity to visit, explore, and learn more about these unique and rare treasures of aviation history.

Visitors are invited to explore the aircraft inside and out at the cost of $12 for adults and $6 for children under 12 for access to up-close viewing and tours through the inside of the aircraft. WWII veterans can tour through the aircraft at no cost. Visitors may also experience the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to actually take a 30-minute flight aboard these rare aircraft. Flights on either the B-17 or B-24 are $425 per person. P-51 flights are $2,200 for a half hour and $3,200 for a full hour.
