Wings of Freedom is Coming to Town

     The Blairsville-Union County Chamber of Commerce is partnering with the Collings Foundation to bring the Wings of Freedom Tour to Union County on October 21-23. The authentically restored WWII aircraft that the Tour will bring to the Blairsville Airport are the B-17, B-24, and P-51.
     You can tour through these planes and even take a flight aboard for the ultimate immersion in history! Take a virtual tour right now by way of a video at this link: http://www.collingsfoundation.org/cf_flightexperiences.htm
     These planes fly on missions that are quite different than those of so long ago. Their mission for today is to educate the world about our courageous World War II veterans and to remember those who have left us. These aircraft stand as tributes to their crews and fly on as living history to enlighten future generations.
