Bowling Green war bird expo

@ BWG Airport

Presented by the Commemorative Air Force, the B-17 Flying Fortress Texas Raiders is one of only three remaining that are actively flying in the U.S. 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.

Hosted by Warren County Regional Airport, the visiting aircraft will also include the world’s only flying example of the notorious SB2C Helldiver dive-bomber, and a twin engine Navy transport in which the whole family can fly together.

All three warbirds are notable for their historic importance and level of restoration, and will offer cockpit tours and flights to the public.

The public is invited to enjoy on-board tours and warbird flights with the aircraft crews at CO-MAR Aviation 1020 Woodhurst Street, Bowling Green, KY 42103. Admission to the event is $10 per adult, $5 for children under 12, and $20 for a family of up to five and includes access to all the aircraft for cockpit tours.

Warbird flights start as low as $100 for the Navy transport. Seats on the B-17 start at $495 and at $995 for the dive-bomber.

June 7-9, 2022. Cockpit tours will be conducted from 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM each day, excluding flying times. Those who wish to fly can call 855-FLY-A-B17 (1-855-359-2217) or reserve online below.

In the late 1800s, stitchery from London’s Royal School of Art needlework and Japanese arts and crafts exhibited at the Philadelphia Centennial Exhibition inspired women across America to take up their needles in new and different ways.
