For the Wings of Freedom Tour in Marana put on by the Collings Foundation, the B24, left, B17, right, and P51 Mustang are readied for the weekend. The tour travels the nation a flying tribute to the flight crews who flew them, the ground crews who maintained them, the workers who built them, the soldiers, sailors and airmen they helped protect; and the citizens and families that share the freedom that they helped preserve.
