B-17G Flying Fortress - The Texas Raiders

B-17G Texas Raiders is one of the most recognized and famous Flying Fortresses currently on the airshow circuit. It has been recognized by AIR CLASSICS magazine as the best restored B-17G bomber currently flying in the world. The aircraft has been restored to wartime configuration by an entirely volunteer group of dedicated supporters. The aircraft has one of the most unusual histories of any existing Flying Fortresses flying today and is one of the most active and visible.

North American P-51D Mustang Red Nose

P-51D North American Mustang “Red Nose” – the plane that started the Commemorative Air Force and has been assigned to the Dixie Wing since 2002. The North American P-51 Mustang is a long range fighter plane that is a veteran of WWII, Korea and other conflicts. In late 1943, P-51’s started to escort the long range bombers over Nazi Germany to fend off the feared Luftwaffe and helped paved the way to Allied Air Superiority over the European Theatre. Known as the “Little Friends” to the bomber crews, the P-51’s along with P-47’s and P-38’s greatly reduced the bomber losses. Our P-51D is a two seat version and is available for rides – click here to reserve your flight.

LT-6 Mosquito

This aircraft was generously donated by two of the Dixie Wing Members, Cols Morris Ray and David Peeler. Originally an SNJ-4, a 6-year restoration has been completed as an LT-6D which was used in Korea as a forward air controller and called a Mosquito. Thanks to our dedicated restoration crew, this aircraft is again in excellent flying condition. It began appearing on the 2008 airshow circuit.

T-34 Mentor

The Beechcraft T-34 Mentor is an American propeller-driven, single-engined, military trainer aircraft derived from the Beechcraft Model 35 Bonanza. The earlier versions of the T-34, dating from around the late 1940s to the 1950s, were piston-engined. These were eventually succeeded by the upgraded T-34C Turbo-Mentor, powered by a turboprop engine. The T-34 remains in service more than six decades after it was first designed.

PT-19 Cornell

The Dixie Wing is the proud owner of a PT-19 Cornell, which was used during the period of WWII as a primary trainer with both the USAAF and the RCAF. The silver paint scheme of the U.S. Army Training Command is the correct color for the American usage of the PT-19. The Canadian Cornells were painted yellow. Blue and yellow colors were discontinued before all but a very few PT-26s were put into service.
