Join the CAF B-17 Flying Fortress Texas Raiders at the CAF Wings Over Dallas WWII Airshow on Oct. 25-27, 2019 at Dallas Executive Airport. In addition to B-17 Texas Raiders, dozens of other WWII-era aircraft will be exhibited on the ramp and in the air throughout the event. Flying demonstrations, flight line presentations, battle reenactments, veteran appearances and aircraft tours will provide hands-on opportunities for families and aviation history enthusiasts.
Of the 12,731 B-17s built across the US, only 9 are currently flying—including Texas Raiders, which was the first B-17 to be restored solely for the purpose of education and use as a flying museum. One of the last flying examples of the iconic bomber arrives in Dallas on Friday October 25, offering attendees a seldom seen opportunity to see and touch one of history’s most storied heavy bombers. On Friday, Saturday and Sunday, October 25-27, attendees can visit the aircraft and take a walk-through tour that includes commentary from crew members. Attendees who want the ultimate Flying Fortress experience can make a reservation below on this page for one of the limited number of 25-minute flights on the classic aircraft, which features authentic period-specific machine guns, original radio equipment, a Norden bombsight and the four hugely powerful Wright –Cyclone engines.
Join us for the Wings Over Dallas on October 25-27 at Dallas Executive Airport (formerly known as Redbird Airport) at 5303 Challenger Drive, Dallas, TX 75237.
