A World War II vintage B-24 Liberator bomber landed at the Tullahoma Regional Airport this morning.
The vintage war bird nicknamed "Diamond Lil" is operated by the Commemorative Air Force and is one of two remaining B-24s in flying condition of the thousands built during World War II. It is just one of many historic aircraft that will be on display at the Wings of Freedom air show this weekend.
The Tullahoma Regional Airport was an Army Air Corp's B-24 training base during World War II.
The FREE air show honors our active duty military personnel and all our military veterans from all wars. It also celebrates the 55th anniversary of the Air Force's Arnold Engineering Development Center located at Arnold Air Force Base, Tenn., in Coffee and Franklin counties.
Gates open at 9 a.m. Saturday and Sunday, May 27-28, and close at 5 p.m. each day. There is a $5 per car parking charge on lots run by the Tennessee Regional Air Show Coalition of the Chambers of Commerce of Manchester and Tullahoma.
No backpacks, alcohol or coolers will be allowed.
From I-24 take exit 111 west toward Tullahoma and follow signs to the air show.
