This was Merrill Wien's last flight as a check pilot in June of 2001. He was fortunate enough to fly the Commemorative Air Forces B-29 called "FIFI." It was (and still is) the last flying B-29 in the world. Since he never got a proper sendoff from the airline flying he did for so long, we thought it would be fun to celebrate his last B-29 flight.
Of the nearly 4000 Superfortresses built during the war; only a handful still exist. Today only ONE still flies. The Commemorative Air Force owns and operates "FIFI" the only flying B-29! The CAF B-29/B-24 Squadron tours the nation each year as a flying tribute to the men and women who built serviced and flew the aircraft of WWII.
Wherever we stop we invite the public to take a tour of the aircraft, and for those lucky few the opportunity to purchase a Living History Flight Experience aboard "FIFI" or Diamond Lil (one of only two flying B-24 Liberators).
