The US built over 12,700 B-17’s and fewer than a dozen are airworthy. The B-17 Texas Raiders is one of out of three that are actively flying and offer public flights. This aircraft was the first Flying Fortress restored solely for educational purposes and to WWII configuration with machine guns and period-specific equipment.

Ground tours will be available when the planes are not flying or being moved on the ramp.
