This video was taken 10 months ago, but i just got the music from a friend. Historical B29 with new drum music. I shouldn't have to say anything more about the history but B29 is located at the Smithsonian Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center. Video date = 2010 May, video uploaded April, 2011.
The last operating B-29 in the world under the nickname of "FiFi" This footage was taken at the C.A.F air show, at KBUR March 23 and 24 2013. I was at this airshow with fellow spotter Ryan Bomar. You can see his footage of the B-29 and other classic aviation videos at http://www.youtube.com/ryanbomar
Lee Cowan shows us a B-29 bomber rescued from the boneyard, and the World War II veterans and volunteers who helped launch it back into the skies.
Smithsonian Air and Space Museum at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center near Washington Dulles International Airport is the companion facility to the Museum on the National Mall. The building opened in December, 2003, and provides enough space for the Smithsonian to display the thousands of aviation and space artifacts that cannot be exhibited on the National Mall.

This is a video of my terrific flight in the Commemorative Air Force's own Boeing B-29 Superfortress "Fifi." I flew in the bombardier position out of Burbank Airport (also called Bob Hope Airport), California, USA. We flew over Burbank, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, Malibu, the Pacific Ocean, and Calabasas at about 2,000 feet with a fantastic run right up Malibu Canyon. What a magnificent, elegant, rare and historic machine!
The Commemorative Air Force's B-29 Superfortress "Fifi," the only flyable B-29 in the world, comes in to land at Reading Regional Airport during the 2011 Mid-Atlantic Air Museum World War 2 Weekend, June 3, 2011. As you can hear from the audio, winds were quite gusty and the B-29 had to make plenty of rudder adjustments to line up. Sorry for the shakiness, but the wind actually made it harder to hold the lens! (c) 2011 Dan Adams - Jolly Roger Photography. All rights reserved.
