World War II Aircraft in Livermore for Memorial Day

Memorial Day is coming up this Monday. Soldiers, airmen, seamen and marines who gave their lives while serving in the line of duty are part of our nations history going all the way back to the American Civil War. We celebrate their memories once a year to remember them and their part in history.

You can see apart of this history as the Collings Foundation will bring a Boeing B-17 “Flying Fortress,” Consolidated B-24 “Liberator,” and North American P-51C “Mustang” to the Livermore Airport this Sunday through Tuesday.

If you can’t make it, just keep an ear out as you’ll surely hear the World War II aircraft flying overhead through the holiday. Are  you elsewhere in the East Bay? The Contra Costa Times has list of Memorial Day events at:
