Department of Transportation's Division of Aviation and the Raleigh-Durham Airport Authority are proud to announce that the Collings Foundation's Wings of Freedom Tour will be making a stop at the airport for a one-of-a-kind chance to see living aviation history.

The tour features four living WWII aircraft - a B-17 Flying Fortress, a Consolidated B-24 Liberator, a B-25 Mitchell bomber and a P-51 Mustang - as well as educational displays and activities from NCDOT, RDU International Airport, the N.C. Museum of History, the National D-Day Memorial, Civil Air Patrol, SAS' Data on the Fly STEM project, Wings of Carolina, and more.

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.

Half-hour flights on either the B-17 or B-24 are $450 per person, while B-25 flights are $400 per person. The chance to co-pilot the P-51D fighter is $2,200 for a half hour and $3,200 for a full hour. Reservations required.
