TULSA, OK -- The throaty war of airplane engines is in abundance at the Tulsa Air and Space Museum as museum-quality planes take to the air. Three T-6 Texans, a B-25 and a P-51 are featured.

It's World War II Warbird Weekend, and it continued Sunday from 1-5 p.m.

"We wanted to show people what's here in their own backyard a far as these World War II war birds," said Kim Jones of the Tulsa Air and Space Museum.

"It's an incredible collection we have."

The Tulsa Warbirds are a group who maintain and fly the fighting aircraft that are featured. Fly-bys were planned for 1 p.m. and 5 p.m. Sunday. They were accompanied by live patriotic and big band music performed by the Tulsa Praise Orchestra.
