Brad's Beat: Freedom of Flight Museum

A piece of World War II history has landed at the Joplin Regional Airport as part of the Freedom of Flight Museum.
JOPLIN, MO.--- A piece of World War II history has landed at the Joplin Regional Airport. AB-17 has landed for the weekend. It's one of many planes that will be on display for the Freedom of Flight Museum.

The plane was used heavily during the war as a bomber. This model was built in 1944 and is fully operational. It travels all across the country reminding people how it helped preserve our freedom.

"They allowed us to speak English. We may be speaking German or Japanese if those airplanes didn't do what they did," says Mel Tiensvold, Pilot.

If you would like to see the plane in person, it will be at the Joplin Regional Airport on Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. It's free to the public.
