The Last B-29

Of the 3,960 B-29s built, only one flies today: Fifi, the Superfortress restored and operated by the Commemorative Air Force. The most advanced bomber of World War II, the B-29 is credited with ending the war in August 1945, when B-29s Enola Gay and Bockscar dropped atomic bombs on Japan. During the 2011 airshow season, Fifi will fly at 10 shows around the country and can be seen at the Cavanaugh Flight Museum in Addison, Texas, and in a LiveAirShowTV video, which tells the story of its restoration.
