Vintage aircraft from World War II will be the guests of honor as the Wings of Freedom Tour of World War II vintage aircraft will visit the Gillespie County Airport, Friday through Sunday, April 3-5.
The event will begin at 2 p.m. on April 3 at the airport’s main ramp.
Among the aircraft to be displayed will be the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, Consolidated B-24 Liberator and North American P-51 Mustang.
The B-17 is one of only eight in flying condition in the United States.
Also at the event will be the “Huey” helicopter, the type of chopper that Medal of Honor winner Stephen Pless flew on several combat missions during the Vietnam War.
Visitors are invited to explore the aircraft inside and out, at a charge of $12 for adults and $6 for children under 12.
WWII veterans can tour through the aircraft for free.
