OMB attends Wings of Freedom tour.

The Wings of Freedom tour visited nearby Oxford Airport this weekend.   A wonderful display of vintage WWII aircraft.  Here are some photos.

130 missions and still flying! That is an amazing piece of our history. So nice to see the photos of you posing with this beauty.

I understand that Jay Leno has added a B-24 to his collection and is restoring it!

Great post! Thanks for stopping by and commenting Sol.

That is so neat you were there. I love the Collins Foundation...they were in Florida two years ago and did the tour...posted a bunch of pictures on Papa's blog...some of the same planes you had your picture taken with as I did too.
So glad you were able to enjoy the show. For me it was a real privilege crawling around in a plane my dad flew...

Enjoyed the post Sol! The Wings of Freedom tour were in Jacksonville a couple of years ago and I had pictures of the same B-24 you are standing next to with me holding a picture of my dad and his crew. Thanks again for the post!Liz

Welcome Liz ! Great to hear you had that wonderful experience of, seeing,touching and standing in the vicinity of a huge B 24 Bomber similar to the one flown by your Dad and his crew. I've re-read your Post on 'The Charlie-Boy Chronicles' many times. He would be very proud of your efforts today.
Thank you,
Solomon
