HARRISON - For the next few days, visitors can get a first-hand look at some World War II ‘Warbirds’ at the Westchester County Airport.

Mac McCauley pilots the B-17 Flying Fortress on the tour, one of only eight in flying condition in the country.

He says visitors can get up close and personal with the planes and learn all about the crews who flew them.

"They get to see what the airplane was really like inside and some of the hardships the kids would have had when they flew them," said McCauley. "They were all 17- to 22-year-old kids flying these airplanes in World War II."

The planes will be on display through Sunday.
