Do you remember watching the movies Twelve O’Clock High or Memphis Belle? Have you ever imagined what it would be like to train for – and fly on – your own mission in the legendary B-17G Flying Fortress “Nine-0-Nine” or the B-24J Liberator “Witchcraft”? The Stockton Field Aviation Museum, in conjunction with the Arizona Ground Crew Living History Unit, Inc. and the Collings Foundation, will be offering a unique two-day program in which you do just that! No doubt, this is one of the most amazing, living history programs you will ever experience!
Battle of the Bombers is the next step in the Stockton Field Aviation Museum’s Bomber Camp. Using the world famous aircraft from the Collings Foundation this program is a step back in time to 1944. In past years we have used either the B-24 or the B-17. This time BOTH bombers will go head to head in competition to see which Bomber and Crew can put their bombs ON TARGET.
You will experience the sights, sounds and smells of 1944 in this immersive condensed training program. You will step back in time and train as the Air Crews trained during WWII.
