BLAINE, Minn. (WCCO) — B-24, B-17, and P-51. These aren’t bingo numbers. They’re airplanes from World War II featured in the Wings of Freedom Tour at the Blaine Airport.

Photojournalist Garrett Young gives us a look at history in the video above.

Thomas Lymburn, aviation historian, said many of the planes are very rare — some were used in the 1930s and others continued to be utilized well into the 1980s.

The Wings of Freedom Tour offers both air flights and ground tours through Sunday.
