FIFI the B29, flies again

The Commemorative Air Force (CAF)'s B-29, with help from a number of sponsers and volunteers, took to the sky today for the first time since 2004. Its regained its status as the world's only flyable B-29 Superfortress.

The work that the CAF does is so important to aviation, its a link to aviation's past and the aircraft the organization restores and flies inspires future aviators of all ages around the country. Please go to their site and find a way to help volunteer, donate, or just spread the word about the great things this organization does.

  1. I love to watch these old aircraft return to their proper place in the sky, to hear and feel the throb of those wonderful engines.

    I wish I could just grab my aviator sunglasses, head to the airport right now, and watch one do some TO&Ls!
