La Crosse, WI - LA CROSSE, Wis. (WXOW) - Today the USA's last running B-24J bomber landed in La Crosse to give a few aviation enthusiasts a ride they would not forget.

This was all part of the 25th annual Collings Fountain's Wings of Freedom Tour. Riders paid $450 to be able to ride in the B-24 or B-17. They took a 30 minute flight over the Coulee Region and were able to tour the different parts of the planes.

People could pay 12 dollars if they just wanted to tour the plane and not take the flight.

As a bonus people could pay $2200 to fly a P-51 for 30 minutes as well.

The planes will be giving another tour tomorrow from 9 AM to noon.
