[R/W] Flight Aboard the Only Flying B-29 Super Fortress

Postby chevyrules » Tue Apr 05, 2016 12:29 pm

Hey guys.... 

The last flying B-29 "Fifi" was in town this past weekend and I bought a ticket to take a ride in her. The whole experience was amazing. Thought I would share some of my videos I recorded of the flight.

I did something very similar in 2014 in a B25J

Thanks for those videos.... love that sound on takeoff!

Just got to fly the cirrus jet this weekend.... your takeoff video reminded me of going down the runway!

I've flown in the Collings Foundation's B-17 and their B-24. If you love aviation, and you are around when any of these or similar warbirds are around, just do it. You'll never forget it, and you'll kick yourself years later if you didn't go!
