On August 4th 2019 the Georgetown Texas Municipal Airport (KGTU) hosted the Georgetown War Bird Weekend where the locally based WWII Bomber PBJ/B-25 “Devil Dog” and the B-17 “Texas Raiders” hosted tours and rides of the two aircraft of the Commemorative Air Force. Pilots and veterans were on hand to provide information, history, and sell souvenirs that keep these historic aircraft flying!
I had such a great time I just had to post a few photographs of the memorable event!.

It does cost a bit to take a ride on these historic aircraft but worth every single penny! They also have T-shirts, Bullets, coins, hats, and other souvenirs that help support and maintain these pieces of flying history. I’m so fortunate to live near this airport and the home of “Devil Dog”. I’m a huge fan! Another tidbit is that one of the pilots, Beth Ann Jenkins, is the ONLY woman certified to fly a B-25. My hat and heart goes out to all the volunteers that maintain and preserve these incredible bits of flying history!
Peace, Love , and Honor to those who serve!
