Chicago Executive Airport

ChicTribChicExecThe Wings of Freedom Tour returns to PWK on August 1 with the arrival of the B-17 Flying Fortress “Nine O Nine,” B-24 Liberator “Witchcraft,” B-25 Mitchell "Tondelayo" bombers and a P-51 Mustang, the "Betty Jane."  The Foundation aircraft depart PWK August 5th.

Join us any time that week to explore and learn about these rare warbirds.

Foundation aircraft will park on the east side of the airport just north of runway 24. For our non-pilots friends, take Milwaukee Ave. to the control tower road and watch for the aircraft.

With a small donation - $12 donation for adults and $6 for kids under 12 - visitors can climb aboard and examine these rare aircraft up close.

Just in case a look inside isn't quite enough to calm your aviation curiosity cells, Collings also offers a 30-minute ride in the B-17, B-24 or the P-51. Cost for the B-17 or B-24 are $450 per person and $400 per person on the B-25. P-51 flights are $2,200 for a half hour and $3,200 for a full hour.

Pre-registration for aircraft rides is always appreciated, though not required. Call Collings at 800-568-8924 for more flight registration information. Visit our webpage for additional info on the tour.
