FiFi the only flying B-29

FIFI is the only flying B-29 in the whole world. It is not a War Vet and did not see any action. It was built in late 1945 and was used in training State side. It came to Pittsburgh for a visit in mid June this year and for $600 dollars you could go for a ride. I did not have $600 dollars but it went up full each time. I could not get any flying photos this day as the weather turned bad later in the day. Note how dull the Aluminum Finish is

Love looking at your photos John. Seeing a B-29 is the main reason I want to go to the 'American Air Museum' in Duxford (England) I think it's the only one in Britain.

Thank you for the sum of interesting picutures. I think the FIFI is still not the one and only B-29 in the air, the second is the B-29 DOC. And now I have to explanin my wife a trip in the US.... :)
