WORLD WAR II COLLECTION
During World War II, aviation firmly established itself as a critical component of modern warfare. Military investment during WWII accelerated aviation design considerably. The Collings Foundation has recovered and restored many of the true landmark aircraft that built the world aviation history.
Consolidated B-24J Liberator
The world's only flying B-24J continues soaring through its native skies as part of the annual Wings of Freedom Tour with its sister ship, the B-17 Flying Fortress.
Boeing B-17G Flying Fortress
Made famous in its role in the Daylight Strategic Bombing Campaign of WWII and the post-war movies that made it an icon, the B-17 flies proudly across the United States with its companion.
North American TP-51C Mustang
The Collings Foundation is pleased to announce the addition of the world’s only dual control P-51C Mustang to our WWII aircraft collection.
