B-24 Low Approach BUR
to post a comment.
Super Foto !
Looks like it has been Photoshopped a bit. I have seen this plane in person. It was restored by the Collings Foundation based in Massachusetts (I believe). Here is an excerpt concerning this B-24J Liberator called Witchcraft: "Since 1989, a major focus of the Foundation has been the 'Wings of Freedom Tour' of WWII aircraft. This tour showcases two fully restored bomber aircraft: a B-24 Liberator and B-17 Flying Fortress. The newest addition to the Wings of Freedom Tour is a WWII P-51C Mustang dual-control fighter aircraft.
"The Foundation’s 1944 vintage Consolidated B-24J Liberator is painted as "Witchcraft", an 8th AF bomber that flew a record 130 missions over Europe as part of the 467th BG. The Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress flies as "Nine-O-Nine", an 8th Air Force, 91st BG heavy bomber. The B-17 was the companion of the B-24 in thousands of wartime, bombing, and reconnaissance missions. Together they were the backbone of the daylight strategic bombing campaign of WWII. Joining the bombers is a P-51C Mustang escort fighter “Betty Jane”. The P-51 was affectionately nicknamed by the bomber crews as their “Little Friends”. The P-51 Mustang and the pilots who flew them saved countless lives in the skies and on the ground, and helped turn the tide of WWII. The P-51 is arguably the finest fighter aircraft in the history of aviation."
"The "Wings of Freedom Tour" has two goals: to honor the sacrifices made by our veterans that allow us to enjoy our freedom; and to educate the visitors, especially younger Americans, about our national history and heritage. The Foundation encourages people to tour the planes, talk to the veterans who come to visit the aircraft, and participate in a "flight experience”. In twenty-two years, the tour has made more than 2,600 visits to airports across the United States and Alaska. While the exact number of visitors is difficult to gauge, it is estimated that between 3.5 and 4 million people see these warbirds annually."
It is a fabulous sight to see "up close and personal." For a price, you can fly in all of these Wings of Freedom planes. In the P51, you are allowed to take over the controls...wow
Oh...I forgot. If you zoom in on the photo next to my name, it's the Betty Jane P51 Mustang that comes to our airport on the Wings of Freedom tour. Thank heaven for the Collings Foundation!
