B-24 Liberator Touches Down in Bismarck

Posted: Updated:

It's almost Independence Day and Bismarck gets a surprise visit from a very special kind of veteran.

A World War Two B-24 Liberator was headed to Minot Monday but was forced to land in the Bismarck Airport because of the extreme wind.

It was built in the 1940s and went on to survive 130 missions.

This one here is the only B-24 left in the world that is still able to fly.

This plane is a part of the Wings of Freedom Tour that gives people a chance to see a piece of living history.

Kyle Anderson, the pilot, said that it really gives you a sense of how far the technology that is used to protect our country has come.

"Once you're inside, theres a lot of stuff inside here that makes it really difficult to move around. All of us have scars on the top of our heads, backs, and knees, and stuff from bumping into these things in the airplane." Kyle Anderson, B-24 Pilot

Anderson says the B-24 has brought tears to the eyes of veterans.
