Antique aircraft fly visitors back in time
A Wings of Freedom tour is looking to honor veterans through the very aircraft they flew in combat. WUFT-FM’s Zac Blobner says antique planes were on-hand this weekend to help everyday people take a step back in history in a veteran’s combat boots.
The tour is moving through 120 cities, stopping in Gainesville for just this past weekend.
