Vintage World War II aircraft will be at the John Murtha Johnstown-Cambria Airport starting on Wednesday as part of a unique event.
The planes were expected to land Wednesday afternoon and veterans were expected to give speeches as part of the Wings Of Freedom tour.
The WWII Vintage Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, Consolidated B-24 Liberator and North American P-51 Mustang will be at the airport through Friday.
The event is part of a 110-city nationwide Wings Of Freedom tour, which organizers called a "rare opportunity to visit, explore, and learn more about these unique and rare treasures of aviation history."
According to a news release from organizers, the B-17 is one of only 10 in flying condition in the United States and the B-24J and Full Dual Control P-51C Mustang are the sole remaining examples of their type flying in the world.
