Have you ever wondered what it is like to tour with one of the Commemorative Air Force’s biggest and most interesting bombers? The CAF AirPower History Tour has select crewmember positions open for interested CAF Colonels. The positions include B-29 ground crew, ride desk and flight crew positions. There is plenty of work involved when touring an aircraft like ‘FIFI’, but the fun and rewards are tremendous. In addition to being a CAF Colonel, Preservation Colonel or Life Member and a member of the B-29/B-24 Squadron (it’s easy to join and the cost is $75/annually). All volunteer crew should be in good health as the days on tour are long, hot and the work may be strenuous. Crew is expected to travel for two weeks or more at a time. Specialized training for dedicated individuals is available. This could be one of the most rewarding and fun things you will do in 2015.
You do not need to be from Texas, as many of our crewmembers come from all over the U.S. and even overseas.
If you would like to learn more about what we do, please plan to attend our ground school.
