TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) — This weekend, you can see a piece of history in Tallahassee.

These planes protected bombers during World War II. This particular plane crashed and was rebuilt twice.

"Everybody plays into how these guys managed to succeed in doing what they did,” said Dr AJ Brickler, a member of the Commemorative Air Force. “Their story is one that created inspiration. And everyone needs a little inspiration."
