Collings Foundation

Barnstable Municipal Airport will host the Collings Foundations' WINGS OF FREEDOM TOUR, which will hit 110 cities in more than 35 states showcasing living history on the ground and in the skies. The tour brings extremely rare bomber and fighter aircraft - including the Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress "Nine O Nine" WWII Heavy Bomber, Consolidated B-24 Liberator “Witchcraft” WWII Heavy Bomber and P-51 Mustang fighter - to the Cape from Monday, September 12 to Wednesday, September 14.

The planes will be exhibited at the Airport’s East Ramp with free parking on Mary Dunn Way. Ground tours as well as a one-of-a-kind 30-minute flight experience will be available to interested patrons. WWII veterans can tour through the aircraft at no cost!

Visitors are invited to explore the aircraft inside and out at a cost of $12 for adults and $6 for children under 12. These fees grant you access to up-close viewing and tours through the inside of the aircraft. They also allow the Foundation to continue their work of both restoring and preserving the aircraft for future generations. Discounted rates are also available for school groups.
