Yesterday, the Wings of Freedom Tour hosted by the Frontiers of Flight Museum soared in to Dallas for an exciting, once-in-a-lifetime flying experience and exhibit today through Sunday, March 23. The museum, 6911 Lemmon Ave., is hosting the event in honor of our WWII Veterans. The Wings of Freedom Tour showcases extremely rare bomber and fighter aircraft which is a living history exhibit and part of a 110-city nationwide tour. Best of all, guests visiting the exhibit at the Frontiers of Flight Museum will not only get a chance to view the interactive display, they will actually have an opportunity to “fly into history” by taking a flight aboard these legendary aircraft.

Aviation enthusiasts of all ages will be “flying high” when they see the vintage Boeing B-17 “Flying Fortress” Nine-O-Nine WWII Heavy Bomber, Consolidated B-24J “Liberator” Witchcraft WWII Heavy Bomber, and the P-51 “Mustang,” known as one of the greatest piston-engine fighters ever built.
This year, back by popular demand is a highly-anticipated added tour attraction for guests at the Frontiers of Flight Museum featuring a special appearance of the Bell UH-1 “Huey” Helicopter. The helicopter was developed by Bell Helicopter to meet the U.S. Army’s requirements for a medical evacuation and utility helicopter in 1952. It was the first turbine-powered helicopter to enter production for the U.S. military and was used widely in Viet Nam during the 1960s.
The Wings of Freedom Tour at the Frontiers of Flight Museum will offer participants bragging rights to explore these majestic aircraft inside and out and learn more about these unique and rare treasures of aviation history. The B-17 is one of only 10 in flying condition in the United States, and the B-24J is the sole remaining example of its type flying in the world.
Admission to the Museum is $12 for adults and $7 for children under 12 and includes access to up-close viewing and tours through the inside of the aircraft. Some adventurous fans will have an incredible opportunity accomplish one of their “bucket list” goals by actually taking a 30-minute flight aboard these rare aircraft. Flights on either the B-17 or B-24 are $450 per person. Huey flights are $80 for bench and $100 for the front. P-51 flights are $2,200 for a half hour and $3,200 for a full hour. The P-51 flights give would-be pilots a chance to get some “stick time” in the world’s greatest piston-engine fighter!
