CAF Air Power History Tour
This September aviation history blasts out of the museums and into the skies as Texas Raiders, a fully restored B-17 Flying Fortress, thunders into Fayetteville on her four giant engines. The CAF Airpower History Tour features an impressive flying display of vintage military aircraft and offers visitors an excellent opportunity to get close to the aircraft. All of the aircraft will offer tours and flights in the historic planes, hosted by their crews. On Thursday, Friday and Saturday, September 22, 23, and 24, attendees can visit the aircraft and for 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 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. Joining the B-17 Flying Fortress at Drake Field will be a T-6 Texan advanced trainer, aT-34 Mentor and the Boeing PT-13 Stearman. Reservations to fly on these three aircraft may be made at
