Thanks to the Collings Foundation, we had the opportunity to see three WWII aircraft fully restored to flying condition. Being able to go inside a B-17 is an amazing experience. The aircraft is so tight inside, it is amazing what the crew could manage to do. At the exhibit, there were actual WWII Veterans telling their own stories and the youth of our country listening intently. I am thankful to our Veterans who have fought and continue to fight for our country. I am also thankful to the Collings Foundation for making this type of history accessible to the general public.
