"FIFI", the U.S. Air Force's B-29 Superfortress
One of only two airworthy B-29's, "FIFI" is a vintage beauty. She first flew in 1942 and was a big part of the U.S. Air Force until the late 1950's. She was credited as helping to end WWII. Hers was the first pressurized cabin and she represented state of the art technology.
