Friday Flyday: The B-24 Liberator


Military aviation isn’t a particularly large part of what I cover here typically but this trip was much more about history: Honoring WWII veterans and the legacy they left for the rest of us. Follow along as the Commemorative Air Force takes its B-24 Liberator – one of only two still flying today – into the skies for a tour around the skies south of Dallas, Texas. The 30 minute flight is condensed down to about 3 minutes via timelapse.

And, for a bit more on why we were out flying the B-24 this particular day check out this segment I put together earlier in the week:

If you have the opportunity to take a ride on one of these historic aircraft I strongly recommend it. Tons of fun.
