We’ve received numerous inquiries if the Collings Foundation’s “Wings of Freedom Tour” is returning to Valparaiso this year. Unfortunately the tour continues to be on hiatus and is not touring this year. We’re hopeful for a 2022 tour.
The Collings Foundation’s WWII B-17G Flying Fortress, B-24J Liberator, B-25J Mitchell, P-51D Mustang, and P-40N Warhawk will be visiting Valparaiso, IN at the Porter County Regional Airport August 1-4.
Tours through the aircraft will be available for $15 for Adults, $5 for Children and Free for WWII Veterans. Tour hours are 2pm-5pm August 1 and 10am-5pm August 2-4.
Half hour flights on the B-17 & B-24 are $450 per person and $400 per person on the B-25. P-51 flights are $2400 for a half hour and $3400 for a full hour. P-40 flights are $2200 for a half hour and $3200 for a full hour. A majority of your flight donation is tax-deductible! Come on out and help us “Keep ’em Flying!”
Other activities will include Food & Beverages from EAA 104, a Pancake Breafast on Sat & Sun from 8am to 11am, WWII Re-enactors, WWII Vehicles, and an Honor Flight Chicago Display.
