Default Wings of Freedom

The Wings of Freedom tour stopped in Venice Florida so took a ride up to see them land and tour the aircraft, The prop wash was amazing, blew my hat off when the B24 turned and faced away from us. The tour included a B24, B17 and a P51 Mustang VIP 2 passenger. For a slight charge we could go aboard and experience the tight interior and WWII technology. They were completely dissembled and rebuilt to flying condition. You could go for a Ĺ hour flight in the P51 for $2200 or as a group on one of the bombers for $450 We didnít but it was still a rush getting aboard. Shot with my K30 and DAL 55-300

First the B24 flew over and landed
