What a Beautiful Monster
“FiFi” is one of the two B-29s that’s still flying today. The other B-29 is called “Doc.” To see grand old machines being cared for and revered for her service during World War II is truly remarkable. Hats off to the people who kept WWII warbirds like these flying. FiFi is being maintained and operated by the B-29/B-24 Wing of the Commemorative Air Force (CAF).
This video was taken at the C.A.F air show, at KBUR in 2013. We absolutely how the sound of those ancient radials come to life, and hers was pure rhythm. The sound at 7:42 is pure power. Those massive radials, cranking up and running. She’s truly magnificent in every way.
Would have been awesome to see this plane up close, and then take off in person!
