The Wings of Freedom tour, a showcase of vintage airplanes, is coming to Ada Regional Airport this week.
The tour will fly into the airport at 2 p.m. Wednesday and will be on display until the planes depart after noon operations Friday. Hours for the ground tour and display are from 2 to 5 p.m. Wednesday, 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. Thursday and 9 a.m. until noon Friday.
The event will feature a World War II-vintage Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, a Consolidated B-25 Liberator, a North American B-25 Mitchell and a P-51 Mustang. Visitors are invited to explore the plans inside and out.
Walk-through tours are available for $15 for adults and $5 for children under 12, with discounted rates for school groups.
Visitors may also experience a rare opportunity to take a 30-minute flight aboard these rare planes. Flights on either the B-17 or the B-24 are $450 per person, and B-25 flights are $400.
P-51 flight training is $2,400 for a half hour and $3,400 for a full hour.

The tour is sponsored by the Collings Foundation, a nonprofit organization that puts together “living history” events that allow people to learn more about their heritage and history through direct participation.
