The LoCO Lowdown | Lost Coast Outpost | Humboldt County

MONDAY LOWDOWN: Did I Just See a WWII Military Plane Flying Above McKinleyville?

An out-of-the-norm flying object above McKinleyville this morning | Tex Green

Perhaps you, too, are one of the LoCO readers who noticed some historic aircraft circling Macktown this morning. Fear not. We are not under attack, you are not hallucinating, nor did you accidentally travel back in time again.

For the next three days Humboldters have the opportunity to tour several WWII-era planes during the return of the Wings of Freedom Tour. Aviation fans need only to take a trip up to ACV to get up close and personnel with a B-17 Flying Fortress, a B-24 Liberator, a B-25 Mitchell, a P-51 Mustang, and a P-40 Warhawk thanks to the fine folks at the Collings Foundation.

Hell, for a price, you can even take the planes for a spin, like LoCO did a few years back. Wanna? More details here.
