Absolutely gorgeous! I love Fifi dearly. Awesome glamour shot.

Thank you for a good photo and useful comment.

I had the great privilege of touring the interior of "FIFI" when she visited Cheyenne WY in August 2016. Later I watched (and heard!) her take off. What a great airplane. Gives me goosebumps to remember it.

I hope that they bring Fifi to FLorida one winter to keep her warm and let us fly in her. I have flown in all the Collins aircraft and would gladly pay $1000.00 for a flight in the B-29.

Ooh! Sorry folks, gotta brag. FiFi's winter overhaul 2015-2016 included removal, refurbish, and replace of both all the engine cowls and all wing leading edges. I had the privilege of assisting. This photo high lights both the areas where I was able to contribute, Outboard of #1 LE and #2 Cowl reinstall. They are still looking good. :)

skylab72; It's ok to take pride in your work. Years ago at the Reno Air Races, some jerk would not admit my 14yr old son to the Pit area -- citing insurance reasons. I told him "If you don't instill love for these aircraft today, YOU will not be able see events like this anywhere." There use to be several Air Races across the U.S., but today, Reno is the last of these "show-n-tell" high speed events left.
