    Meet the B17 flying fortress "Texas Raiders"

    Undoubtedly one of the most memorable aircraft in the world. If one where to say World War 2 bomber there is no way around the sheer awesomeness that is the B17. She was able to take massive damage and still get her crew home. The German pilots named her fliegendes Stachelschwein… the flying porcupine. And it is not hard to imagine why with the sheer amount of guns sticking out of her fuselage!

    This footage was shot at the first Dallas CAF World War II Air Expo which was held over the first weekend of October 2014.
