The Collings Foundation believes nothing tells the story of World War II quite like a chance to get close and personal with weapons of the air.

The nonprofit, educational group from Stow, Massachusetts, was started in 1979 to support living history. Their idea is to allow the opportunity for not just exhibits, but interaction to enable the public to learn more about heritage through direct participation.

In the beginning, the foundation promoted antique car rallies, hill climbs, carriage and sleigh rides, and a winter ice-cutting festival.
