We are excited to announce the Warbird Tour – Macon. It’s been over 75 years since the largest air armada the world had ever seen lifted into the skies over Europe, but on Friday, Saturday and Sunday May 20, 21 and 22 history will come alive when five vintage warbirds roar into Macon, Georgia, led by the most iconic aircraft of WWII: the B-17 Flying Fortress.
The Commemorative Air Force will be flying in the B-17 Flying Fortress Texas Raiders which is one of only four remaining that are actively flying in the world today. This aircraft was the first Flying Fortress to be restored solely for the sake of education and use as a flying museum, and is an accurately restored B-17, bristling with machine guns and featuring period-specific equipment.
The event will be held at the Middle Georgia Regional Airport / Lowe Aviation. The visiting aircraft will also include a P-51 fighter, famous for protecting the B-17s over Europe, the notorious SB2C Helldiver dive-bomber, the popular SNJ/T6 Texan advanced trainer in which thousands of airmen trained for combat, and a twin-engine C-45 transport in which the whole family can fly together. All five warbirds will offer cockpit tours and flights to the public beginning Friday May 20th.
