World War II airplane

The arrival of World War II airplanes at Warren County Airport has been postponed until Oct. 1-4.

QUEENSBURY — The weather has postponed the arrival of four vintage World War II airplanes for a few weeks.

The Massachusetts-based Collings Foundation's Wings of Freedom Tour was scheduled to arrive Monday for a four-day stopover at Warren County Airport.

But bad weather that continued into Tuesday has postponed the event until Oct. 1-4, according to airport Manager Don DeGraw.

The tour plans to fly four warplanes to the airport. They include a Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress, a Consolidated B-24 Liberator, a B-25 Mitchell and a North American P-51 Mustang. They're among the only of their kind still flying.

Based outside Boston, the Collings Foundation is in its 29th year of bringing WWII aircraft to airports around the country.
