Passengers board a B-24 Liberator Wednesday for the last flight of the Wings of Freedom Tour, sponsored by the Collings Foundation, at Ramona Airport. Alan Cutsinger, a volunteer with the foundation, said the B-24 Liberator is the “last one of its kind still flying.” The tour featured three WWII-era bomber aircraft.
