BELGRADE -

You might have noticed some older planes coming into the Bozeman Yellowstone International Airport Thursday as three rare World War II planes landed Thursday afternoon.

The Wings of Freedom Tour brought a B-17 bomber, a B-24 bomber and a P-51 Mustang fighter to Bozeman.

There are only eight B-17s still fling and one B-24 and P-51.

One World War II veteran that went to the see the planes remembers flying in a B-17 during the war.
 
"It was generally cold," said Norman Mueleer. "We were flying at a high altitude and sometimes it was way sub zero."

The three planes are also on display Friday. Adults cost $12 and $6 for children

Flights on either the B-17 or B-24 are available for $425 per person. P-51 flights are $2,200 for a half hour and $3,200 for a full hour.
