TEMPLE, Texas (KWTX) The Wings of Freedom Tour touched down Monday at Draughon–Miller Central Texas Regional Airport in Temple with its collection of vintage World War II aircraft.

The privately-owned collection includes a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, a Consolidated B-24 Liberator, and a North American B-25 Mitchell, which organizers say is the last of its kind still flying.

The tour makes stops at more than 130 cities across the country annually.

The Collings Foundation owns the aircraft.

The static display at the airport is free, but there’s a charge of $15 for adults and $5 for children to view the inside of the planes.

Flights aboard the planes are also available.
