The flight into Tyler Regional Airport will be led by “Texas Raiders” – the famed B-17 Flying Fortress heavy bomber. Joining her will be the powerful B-25 Mitchell bomber Devil Dog, our own T-6 Texan “Ace in the Hole,” and the ferocious A26 Invader attack aircraft “Night Mission.” Also on the tarmac will the notorious SB2C Helldiver dive-bomber, the only one of its kind flying in the world today. Attendees will enjoy the bright yellow N3N biplane “Yellow Peril” that offers an open-cockpit experience, and the crisp Navy blue JRB “Little Raider” that can seat a family of five! All the aircraft are notable for their historic importance and level of restoration and together offer a seldom-seen look into America’s aviation history.
Tours of the aircraft are available to the public as is the opportunity to ride in all the aircraft. Beginning at 11:00 AM on July 4 and at 10:00 AM July 5, 6 and 7 the public can visit the aircraft and take on-board tours that include commentary from crew members. Admission to the event includes full access to the Historic Aviation Memorial Museum http://www.tylerhamm.com/ .
