Super Cool. I would love to fly in one of these! I got to see a B24 and a B29 a few years back but never a 17. Cool shots.

Very jealous. I'd love to fly one one day.

I doubt they had a Garmin 530 and 430 setup back then. It would have made finding targets a lot easier though. :-P

That's a pretty trick setup they've got in there. There is something very cool about the mix of vintage steam gauges and the glass displays.

THanks again everyone! Believe I heard one of the pilots telling someone that they had to have the modern GPS system because of FAA regulations to fly that plane. Post some more if you guys like?

Congrats on your ride and really nice photo's. Texas Raiders has been around for a long time. If one ever gets a chance, do a ride up in the nose and hold your ears on takeoff as its really loud...
