Your B-17 Flight single


Name Our Twin Beech Contest Entry with $25 Donation

Grab an opportunity few people ever have – be the one who gets to name our newest aircraft! When a warbird joins the Commemorative Air Force’s Living History Flight Experience program, it needs a noteworthy and inspiring name.

Make a $25 donation to the maintenance fund of the CAF Gulf Coast Wing’s WWII-era Twin Beech, and submit your idea for a name for the aircraft.

The prize is a flight for four people on the Twin Beech, plus of course, massive bragging rights!

Painted in the glossy blue of a Navy flag officer’s JRB-6 in World War II, our 1947 Beechcraft Model 18D has just entered the Living History Flight program.

She is now offering flights to the public from our home base in Conroe, Texas and beyond as it tours with the CAF B-17 Flying Fortress, Texas Raiders.

Do you have a great idea for a name ?

How To Enter

Open to all individuals age 18 years or older as of the date of entry, including volunteer members of the Commemorative Air Force. Paid employees of the CAF and the Staff of the Gulf Coast Wing are not eligible. Contestants must submit entries via the contest form on the CAF Gulf Coast Wing website.

Entries must be original, not subject to third party rights such as trademarks, tradenames, or other intellectual property rights. Entries previously published or pending publication, or that violate or infringe upon another person's or company’s copyright or other intellectual property rights are not eligible.

By entering the contest, contestants grant the CAF the right to use all submitted entry names for any and all purposes, including graphic design, advertising, sales, fund-raising, merchandising, and related purposes. All entries become the sole property of the CAF, and contestants assign any and all rights to the CAF in perpetuity without remuneration or further compensation.

The CAF will also retain personal information collected on the entry form. Email addresses may be used for future CAF email communications but will not be sold, traded or shared elsewhere. The CAF solicits donations in conjunction with submitted entries, but no donation or purchase is required.

Winner Selection and Prize

All entries will be reviewed by CAF Gulf Coast Wing Staff for suitability. Gulf Coast Wing Staff will evaluate and select the three most desirable and suitable entries. Those entries will be presented to the qualified membership of the CAF Gulf Coast Wing, who will vote to select the winning entry.

Winner will be selected on or about January 15, 2018, and notified shortly thereafter. The prize will take the form of a Ride Certificate good for four seats on the Twin Beech at any public event at which the aircraft is offering rides. The Ride Certificate will be good for two years and is not transferrable. If the winner does not acknowledge the notification and claim the Ride Certificate within 72 hours of notification, the CAF may award the prize to the entrant with the next highest number of votes, even if the entry with the most votes is used in naming the aircraft.

Additionally, the winning entry will be published on the CAF Gulf Coast Wing website and Facebook page for public viewing. The winner may choose to be publicly identified or not.
