CAF AirPower tour invites visitors for up-close look at history

in Community/Local News

The guttural thrumming of engines could be occasionally heard as World War II aircraft took off from MBS International Airport this weekend. The Commemorative Air Force’s (CAF) AirPower History Tour made a stop in the region, staying from Aug. 11-14.

The show featured four planes from the World War II era: a B-29 Superfortress, B-24 Liberator, T-6 Texan and PT-13 Stearman. Visitors had a chance to tour the planes while a select few had the opportunity to take them for a flight.

The goal of the CAF was to save one type of each aircraft that served in World War II. The CAF AirPower History Tour takes place April through November; its next stop is set for Aug. 17-21 in Toledo, Ohio. For more information about the tour, visit
