    Fifi is in Wilmington NC this weekend

    One of only two that are still flying, this B-29 SuperFortress built in 1944 is a rare sight.

    By the time you hear the gunshot, it's already too late...

    Was lucky enough to get inside for a tour of her and "Diamond Lil" at Stewart IAP in Newburgh NY about 17 years ago. By all means if you get the chance, go check her out.

    Next time FiFi is in Lubbock, I'll scrape together the $400 it probably costs today to go for a flight around town.

    The roar of her engines is unbelievable.

    A lot of these aircraft were rebuilt at Kissimmee Airport.
    Taking this country back....one job at a time!

    In memory of BUTT. Thanks for, your wisdom, your humor and your willingness to pass it on. You ARE missed.

    YES, I am a "bean people" !

    A lot were rebuilt at the Midland, TX airport while the Confederate Air-force was still the Confederate Air Force.

    Here's a YouTube video about Doc's rebuild and first flight in 60 years.



    I love seeing the old warbirds flying again, where they belong!
