The Flying Heritage Collection, one of the world's great collections of rare World War II-era fighter planes from five major countries of the war, announced today that its exhibition facility at Paine Field in Everett, Wash. is now open to the public. The collection features 15 of the most famous fighting planes ever designed and built, and it is one of the nation's largest collections of vintage planes in flyable condition.
"These planes and artifacts are important pieces of aviation history," said Microsoft co-founder and philanthropist Paul G. Allen, owner of the Flying Heritage Collection. "Each plane represents a technological advancement that had an impact on flight right up to today. Our goal is to restore these planes, preserve them to authentic, flying condition, and share them with the public for generations to come."
