EVERETT – The public will have a chance to tour three restored World War II planes at Paine Field.
A Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, a Consolidated B-24 Liberator and a North American B-25 Mitchell arrived Wednesday afternoon as part of the Collings Foundation’s 130-city nationwide tour, Wings of Freedom. The planes will be at Paine Field until noon Friday.
The Massachusetts-based foundation takes the planes around the country every year, with entry fees from the events used to keep the tour going and the rare planes in top condition.
A $10 donation for adults and $5 for children under 12 allows for up-close viewing and tours inside the aircraft. Flights may be taken for a tax-deductible donation of $400.
The planes will be parked near the control tower at Paine Field, 3220 100th St. SW. For more information, call 978-562-9182.
