Bomber Homecoming

October 9, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Every summer, thousands of people flock to unique historic exhibitions brought to over 40 communities around the U.S. and Canada by the Flying Legends of Victory Tour. The Arizona Commemorative Air Force Museum is excited to welcome home the two most iconic warplanes from World War II, the B17 “Sentimental Journey” and the B25 “Maid in the Shade”, which visited such cities as Wenatchee, WA, Sarnia, ON, Penticton, BC, Bar Harbor, ME and Hot Springs, AR to name a few.

The public is invited to help welcome home the two bombers on Monday, October 9, 2017 as they land between 3 pm and 3:30 pm*, at the Arizona Commemorative Air Force museum.  Join us when the museum opens at 10 am for a tour and stick around for the homecoming festivities to include a color guard ceremony and a chance to tour the B17 and B25 bombers. Discounted 2017 tour merchandise will also be available.
