We are pretty excited here at SkySouth and the Burlington-Alamance Regional Airport. Why? Every few years the Collings Foundation makes a stop at our airport with their Wings of Freedom Living History Tour featuring a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, Consolidated B-24 Liberator, and P-51 Mustang. They will be coming back to Burlington on October 17-19. Fly-in or drive-in – it is a great opportunity to experience history up close!
