March 11, 2010 —  The Katy VFW Post 9182 will be assisting the Wings of Freedom Tour in the Katy / Brookshire area over three days, Wednesday, March 17 through Friday, March 19.  Three of the most famous World War II bomber and fighter aircraft are a part of this “living history” event where the museum comes to our community.  The North American P-51 Mustang, Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress and the Consolidated B-24 Liberator and other aircraft will be on display at the Houston Executive Airport at the main ramp.  The public is encouraged to come to the Houston Executive Airport to tour many magnificently restored aircraft on the ground or enjoy the ultimate experience by taking a 30-minute flight aboard one of the bombers or get some “stick time” in the world’s only Dual Control P-51C Mustang.

The Wings of Freedom tour has graciously extended a complimentary flight to four World War II veterans, who are members of VFW Post 9182, along with the City of Katy Mayor Don Elder, from Ellington Field to the Houston Executive airport.  Junior Vice Commander, Dave Brasell, is leading the coordination.

It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity to FLY A MISSION aboard the B-17 or B-24 or tour this historic aircraft.  To make flight reservations or for questions call 800-568-8924 or visit www.cfdn.org for more details.  Please mention you found this on www.KatyMagazine.com.
