History in the Form of WWII Planes Comes to McKinney

The skies above McKinney were filled with a piece of history and the sound of World War II planes as the Commemorative Air Force began the Air Power Expo Tour at Collin County Regional Airport in McKinney on Thursday. Experience the sights, smells and sounds of historic World War II aircraft as cockpit tours are available throughout the weekend with the cost of admission. The aircraft will have no ropes or barriers and visitors will have full access to get up close and take lots of pictures.

Enjoy food trucks, McKinney’s own community Swing Band, tours and more. The event features the world’s only flying B-29 Superfortress, FiFi, and the planes, pilots and crews of the Commemorative Air Force. Rides on airplanes can be scheduled in advance for a slightly discounted fee. The event runs through Sunday, Oct. 6.
