WWII-era plane crashes in Connecticut

The vintage WWII bomber that crashed while trying to land at an airport in Hartford, Connecticut was there as part of an event spotlighting the aircraft.

A Wings of Freedom Tour that included the B-17 Flying Fortress aircraft, among others, is scheduled for September 30th through October 3rd at Bradley International Airport, according to the Collings Foundation website, which is currently down. 

The Collings Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to preserving aviation history, has just one B17 plane in its collection.

As part of the tour, people can purchase any experience aboard the aircraft and explore inside a B-17 and B-24. Passengers can take flight in the aircraft. Ground tours are also available.

CNN has reached out to the Collings Foundation for a statement.
