This is the ONLY B-29 left in the world that's still in flying condition.  Nice Shot!!  It alternates between The Confederate Air Force in Midland Tx & Addison Tx.

Just read an article about one engine being shot.  And they're wanting to buy a spare as well.  Lot's of money the CAF apparently doesn't have.  Here's a link to the story.

Says 250,000 is needed.  So buy those lottery tickets and if you win remember Fifi.

My father was in the Air Force and got a picture of the SF 71 I think it is called, anyway the Security Police took his camera and he had to report to the base commander. He never did get his camera back.

The aircraft I believe you may be refering to was most likely the Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird (other versions were the YF-11 or the A-12). A high altitude recon aircraft, it was capable of flying over 2,100 miles per hour equivilent to mach 3, cruising altitude approx. 95,000 ft. during most of it's operational life the sensative nature of the missions performed by this aircraft would more than likely have contributed to the strict security that claimed your father's camera and his audience with the base commander.

I got pictures of this beautiful plane at Lunken airport in Cincinnati Ohio. June 28,2013. Oh yeah very nice picture. I think the pilot said it was the last one flying.

Thank you Debbie, this is the last example of this aircraft that is airworthy in the world. She (FIFI) is a gem of flying american history commemorating the men and women who built aircraft like her and the men who flew these aircraft in combat during world war II.

Ah the Fifi. Im pretty sure that's the one that visits long island every summer for the airshow.

My grandfather worked on these during the Korean war. Not fond of them and their engines
