Wings of Freedom Tour – World War II Planes Come to Glacier Park International Airport – 7/3-5 – Kalispell, Montana

July 3 - July 5

World War II-era planes will touch down at Glacier Park International Airport starting July 3 as the airport hosts the Wings of Freedom Tour, an exhibit that offers visitors a chance to explore or even fly in historic aircraft such as fighters and bombers.

A variety of iconic planes will be displayed, including the B-17 Flying Fortress “Nine O Nine,” B-24 Liberator “Witchcraft,” B-25 Mitchell “Tondelayo,” P-51 Mustang “Toulouse Nuts” and P-40 Warhawk “Jaws.”

Guests can take self-guided tours of the interior of several planes, and see other aircraft on the ramp. Adventurous visitors can book a flight experience aboard the B-17 Flying Fortress or B-24 Liberator aircraft and find out what it was like to be a member of the planes’ 10-person crew in 1944. Flight training with an instructor on the P-51 Mustang or P-40 Warhawk can also be purchased, with no prior flying experience required.
