Fasten your seatbelts and hold on tight its going to be a bumpy ride. “All these young people coming here today will realize it was worth the effort” says Mary Grace Decks. Deck’s husband served in World War II. The Wings of Freedom Tour landed in Fort Wayne today bringing with them three aircrafts used in WWII: a B-17 Flying Fortress, B-24 Liberator, and a P-51 Mustang. “It was a great experience” says Martin Bader, Sr. Bader was a mechanic during the war and worked on a B-24. “It makes you feel good that theyre interested in our aircraft” says Bader about the crowd that came out to the Fort Wayne Airport today. From young to the young-at-heart, many enjoyed the three aircrafts on display. “Being on a military aircraft there are so many parts that anything can go wrong at any time” adds Bader. “It was probably the best days of his life. He always talks about his days in the military” says son, Martin Bader, Jr. “I lost a lot of nice friends in either one of the services, but thats the way it went” says Bader. “We grew up during World War II and its something well remember for the rest of our lives” says wife, Irene Bader. Bader Jr. adds that “a lot of people dont know what war is about and to see the equipment even though its not fighting…its pretty powerful stuff.” The Wings of Freedom tour will be on display at the Fort Wayne Airport through Wednesday. Tuesday, August 4: 10am-5:30pm. Wednesday, August 5: 10am-noon 30-minute flight tours in the aircrafts are available. For specific times and to book your spot call 978-618-6626.
