SALISBURY, Md. – The sights and sounds of World War II have landed in Wicomico County. 

The Commemorative Air Force AirPower History Tour is a North American event that takes place every year. On Monday, B-29 and B-24 bombers landed at the Salisbury Regional Airport on Airport Road.

The Flying Fortress honors the men and women who built, flew and maintained aircraft during the war. 

“We’re here to promote history and make sure people remember how our freedom became,” said Don Boccaccio, Commemorative Air Force tour leader.

Students from Worcester County Public Schools toured the aircraft during a field trip.

“[It’s important] so that we know what these planes are, their purpose, what they served, what they’ve done, and we can remember and respect these aircraft,” said one student.

The planes will be at the Salisbury Regional Airport through Wednesday, June 6.
