B-17G Flying Fortress
Dyess Linear Air Park
Abilene, TX


B-17

B-17G Flying Fortress Reluctant Dragon on display at the Dyess Linear Air Park on the entrance road to Dyess AFB, just outside of Abilene, Texas. Since 9/11, the entrance road has been closed, and the air park is only available to people taking the base tour. My visit to Dyess was just prior to the Gulf War in 1990. The air park was just getting underway, and may aircraft were parked in a farm field a ways off of the main road. The aircraft have since been moved to to their display locations along the road. Sidewalks and landscaping has been done to really showcase the aircraft. Too bad a group of Saudi terrorists had to ruin it for the rest of us.
