Texas Raiders and the Bluebonnet Belle

For the second year in a row, we had the CAF Gulf Coast Wing's B-17 "Texas Raiders" on our ramp. Unfortunately, the weather didn't cooperate and they weren't able to perform their ride flights on Saturday, but they did return the following Sunday. Photos show Wings & Wheels on Saturday and the B-17 operations from Sunday.

We did have one fly-in, a beautiful Cessna 195, along with a classic Mercury which looked great parked in front of the museum.

On Saturday, the B-17 was open for tours, and on Sunday was also open for tours, but was able do one revenue flight.

Museum volunteer and chief mechanic Phil LaBox taxied the Bamboo Bomber for all to see and enjoy.
