“Wings of Victory: Keeping Our Warbirds Flying”
On May 23, 2016 at at 6:30pm at the News Journal Center in Daytona Beach, there will be a showing of the new 58-minute documentary featuring American Aero Services and a number of WWII veterans from the area. This free screening is open to the public.
“Wings of Victory: Keeping Our Warbirds Flying” takes a look inside American Aero Services, a New Smyrna Beach company whose mission is restoring and maintaining these treasures of American history. It will also introduce viewers to some of the brave men who flew these aircraft in battle. U.S. aircraft and their brave crews were pivotal in helping the allies win victory in World War II. Of the tens of thousands of military aircraft produced during the war, only a handful of “warbirds” remain flying today.
Viewers will get to experience the restoration of a TP-51 Mustang and ride along with the Collings Foundation crew in the iconic “Nine-O-Nine” B-17 and the B-24 Liberator “Witchcraft,” as they take to the skies at the start of their 2015 nationwide tour.
