A Tulsa airport received a visit from some historical wings of freedom Monday. The Jones Riverside Airport displayed World War II aircrafts.

The display is part of The Collings Foundation's "Wings of Freedom tour." Rare bomber aircrafts like the Consolidated B-24 Liberator and the Vintage Boeing B-17 were shown and flown. The Collings Foundation is touring 130 cities to allow people to learn more about them.

Rob Collings, pilot of the B-24: "These aircraft's are two very important pieces of history and the reason we want to have them travel around the country is to share them with as many people as possible."

The display will be at Jones Airport through Wednesday. The cost is $8 for adults and $4 for children.
