History comes to life starting Friday as the Wings of Freedom Tour roars into the Victoria Regional Airport.
One of the highlights is the B-17 Flying Fortress, made famous by its bombing runs during World War II. The plane now serves on the living history tour to more than 130 cities annually.
The bomber gives WWII veterans a backdrop to talk about their experiences and brings their stories alive and educates a generation that may have never heard of their sacrifices.
The community service event is hosted by the Guadalupe Victoria Chapter, Daughters of the American Revolution.
