CAF Gulf Coast Wing's B-17 Texas Raiders

Nonprofit Organization

Be a part of history by touring or riding in a real Boeing B-17 Flying Fortress. Joins us as we tour the nation.


Though a Boeing design, many B-17s were build under contract by Douglass Aircraft and Lockheed Vega. This Douglass-built B-17G, 44-83872, was transferred to the Navy and flown as PB-1W BuNo 77235. She was the 1st AWACS aircraft and is the only flying PB-1W in existence. She is restored back to USAAF colors flown in the ETO. “Texas Raiders" is hangared at David Wayne Hooks Airport (KDWH) but tours the country providing rides and interactive tours to show Americans this important piece of history.
