At the end of July, 1945 the shiny new airframe that became the famous WWII Flying Fortress "Texas Raiders" rolled off the assembly line in Long Beach, California. The ensuing seventy years have seen the big bomber proudly serve her country in the military, in civilian aviation, and now as a flying museum for the Commemorative Air Force. Freshly painted in the colors of the “Mighty Eighth” Air Force in WWII and displaying fresh new nose art, Texas Raiders continues her 2017 touring season with a visit to Greenwood on June 12-15.

It’s a classic barnstorming visit to Central Indiana. Enjoy an on-board tour with the aircraft crew, or take the ultimate Living History Flight Experience and see Indianapolis from the sky! Tours of the aircraft are $10 for adults, $5 for children or $20 for a family of up to five members. Flights on the Flying Fortress start at $475.

Tours start at 1:00 PM on Monday June 12 and at 10:00 AM Tuesday through Thursday June 13-15, and run through 4:00 PM each day.
