I saw that bird last summer, beautiful. Flew over my garden the next day while I was out there. Stood speechless, looking up and listening to those big motors low rumble. You can't help but think how that sounded approaching on target.

Or a hundred of them, or 300 B-17s... That was a generation of great mechanical development, and a generation of heroes.

It gets emotional when you think about that. Or the fact that you may never get another chance to view a flying B29. This is it, don't miss it.

I plan to ride... have already flown in a B-17, Fifi is on my bucket list.  Thought we were going to ride a couple of years ago, then she had motor problems and cancelled their tour for nearly 2 years.  Will be at one of the spots this year I hope.

Best of luck for a successful boarding. The people who keep her flying are as rare as Fifi. Please.take.some.pics!
