Four giant Wright-Cyclone engines of Texas Raiders, a fully restored B-17 Flying Fortress will be roaring over the great central Texas city of Waco. Of the 12,731 B-17s built across the US, only 9 are currently flying—including Texas Raiders, which is part of the Commemorative Air Force. One of the last flying examples of the famous aircraft is arriving in Waco to offer the public a rare opportunity to see and touch one of history’s most storied heavy bombers.
Texas Raiders will offer tours and the unique opportunity to ride in the historic aircraft. Beginning Saturday March 18 airshow visitors can visit the aircraft and for a nominal admission can take a walk-through tour that includes commentary from crew members. Attendees who want the ultimate Flying Fortress experience can make a reservation now for one of the limited number of 30-minute flights on the classic aircraft.
Join us at the Heart of Texas Airshow, TSTC Campus Airport. Tours of the aircraft are $10 for adults, $5 for children or $20 for a family of up to five members.
