B-17 Flying Fortress Texas Raiders

By the end of World War II the United States and her allies had deployed the largest air armada the world had ever seen, and 12,731 US – made B-17 bombers had joined those forces in combat.

Today, only nine of the iconic bombers still fly.

The Commemorative Air Force’s Flying Fortress, Texas Raiders was one of the last B-17’s ever built, coming off the manufacturing line in July of 1945, as WWII drew to a close. Her military career included service as one of the first airborne early warning and control system (AWACS) aircraft, and missions included scouting, search and rescue, electronic countermeasures, and weather reconnaissance. Her last military assignment was at Naval Air Station Atsugi in Japan, where she flew AWACS combat patrols during the Korean War.


 

B25YellowRose

 The B-25 Mitchell

Today, Rose is flown by a professional crew and thrills air show audiences throughout the United States. Her unique ‘desert camouflage’ paint scheme and markings of the 340th bomb group, that operated out of North Africa, make Rose a standout in any crowd. Flying demonstrations treat crowds to the unique roar of her two R2600, 1700 H.P., 14-cylinder Wright radial engines, and features passes that highlight her capabilities in low level attack including skip and pop-up bombing. The sound of this aircraft is unique and the B-25 is one of the most popular aircraft at air events and reunions in the U.S.

PBJ-1J "Devil Dog"

Not many people know that the US Marine Corps flew bombers in WWII. One of the missions of the Devil Dog Squadron is to keep that piece of history alive. The Marines designated the B-25s "PBJ". PB indicates Patrol Bomber and the J is an alpha-code designating the manufacturer, North American Aviation (PBJ does not mean Peanut Butter and Jelly). The Marines were innovative in customizing the PBJs for the jobs they faced. As most of the missions were performed at low altitude, there was not much need for the glass nose/bombardier position. It was replaced with a solid nose and armed with up to 8 - .50 caliber machine guns, or in some versions, a 75mm cannon.

9 PBJ squadrons made it overseas before the war ended in the Pacific. 26 PBJs were lost in combat and 19 were lost in operational accidents while in a combat zone.

The Devil Dog represents a PBJ-1J (the second J designates the model) of the VMB 612 squadron.
