B-29 Superfortress “Fi Fi” returns to the air.

MIDLAND, TEXAS (Aug. 5, 2010). –The Commemorative Air Force (CAF) is proud to announce the return to flight for FIFI, “the Queen of the Fleet.” The world’s only flyable Boeing B-29 Superfortress returned to the skies early Thursday morning for its first flight since 2004. “It is an emotional day at the CAF for our volunteer-members and staff,” said CAF President Stephan Brown. “There were more than a few tears of joy shed by those who have worked over these past few years to see FIFI fly again. Today is a new beginning for this historic warbird. Thanks to the dedication of our members and the support of Jim Cavanaugh, the B-29 can once again return to telling the stories of the men and women who sacrificed their lives for our freedom.” Film by Hangar Workshop Productions, Gerald Oliver
