The CAF B-17 Flying Fortress Texas Raiders is already preparing for the long trip from south Texas to Washington DC to participate in the Arsenal of Democracy Victory Capitol Flyover. One hundred WWII warbirds will pass in review over the capitol on May 8, 2020 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the end of World War II in Europe. It will be the second trip for the iconic bomber to travel up the Capitol Mall, in salute to the veterans of WWII. Since 1967 Texas Raiders has been on a mission of education and remembrance for the CAF. For over 50 years she has allowed Americans to truly put their hands on history, and has kept alive the memory of those who flew and served in WWII. This aircraft matters to the public as much as it matters to us, so please support Texas Raiders in her mission to join the Arsenal of Democracy this May. Make a donation of at least $40 and the Gulf Coast Wing will send you a pin depicting Texas Raiders popular nose art! We are grateful for your support.
