    The first 4 months of 2008 Collings Foundation Wings of Freedom tour is published and up on their website. Mostly Florida and Texas for the first part of the year.

    Wings of Freedom Schedule - The Collings Foundation

    Dan, for the Vietnam memorial stuff, they will have a TA-4J Skyhawk at the airport in Meridian MS you may want to take the kids to see. It's March 27-30

    2008 F-4D Phantom TA-4J Skyhawk Schedule - The Collings Foundation

    More to follow as the schedule is updated.

    If you haven't seen these birds, it is well worth it. Here are some of my shots from their visit to Camarillo last year:

    As usual, it was raining when I went out to see the CF last month. I had some troubles with the lab. Here are a couple of shots from their stop in Houston. Does anyone have any information about their P-51C dual control Mustang? I went to their website and there was not much about the plane's history. I should have some shots of the P-51C in the air next week.

    DB, the only extra info I have on the Mustang is that it's a TP-51C and it costs $1,200 to take a ride.
