(Heber City--AP) -- Two relics of the Second World War are coming to Heber City.

The old bombers are expected to arrive on Friday. One of the planes is a B-17 Flying Fortress. There are only eight other B-17s left that are still airworthy. The other plane is a B-24 Liberator -- the only one left that can still fly.

After they land at the city airstrip, they'll be on display at the Heber Valley Aero Museum throughout the weekend.

There will be an air-show featuring other World War-Two era planes on Saturday, and the whole thing wraps up with a 1940s-style swing dance party.
