People who want to experience history can visit Pompano Beach Airpark and see three United States World War II military aircraft. These are among the few remaining World War II airplanes that can still fly. People can take a 30 minute ride on them for $425. The airplanes are part of a display by the Wings of Freedom Tour. The airplanes include a P-51 Mustang, a B-17 Flying Fortress and a B-24 Liberator.

A number of World War II veterans have visited the airplanes and they remember their experiences in World War II. Harold Johnson was a paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne and served in Italy. He received two purple hearts and five battle stars. He remembers the difficulties and hardships of serving in the that conflict and still has a copy of the map he was issued before parachuting into Europe.
