Warbirds Stopping By in October

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!
