Iconic Boeing B-29 Superfortress Coming to Lunken Airport July 12-16

FIFI, the Commemorative Air Force's (CAF) iconic Boeing B-29 Superfortress, will fly into Lunken Airport July 10 for a five day event that opens to the public July 12 and runs through July 16.
FIFI is one of only two remaining airworthy B-29s in the world and the only one that flies regularly. The B-29 and other vintage military aircraft will be on display at the Lunken Airport Main Terminal, 262 Wilmer Avenue. Accompanying aircraft will include a P-51 Mustang, C-45 Expeditor, T-6 Texan and PT-13 Stearman. Cincinnati Warbirds EAA Squadron 18, hosts for the event, will have static aircraft on the ramp including a T-28 Trojan and B-25 Mitchell.
These aircraft are powerful history lessons bringing the sights, sounds and stories of World War II aviation history to audiences across the country. Visitors may tour the B-29 cockpit and purchase rides in many of the airplanes.
The donation for ramp access is $10 for adults and $5 for children ages 11-17. Children age 10 and under are free. The airplanes will be on static display when not flying. The event is open to the public Wednesday, July 16, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Ride reservations may be made at www.AirPowerTour.org, where additional information about the tour stop also may be found.
The Boeing B-29 Superfortress, first flown in 1942, began active service in 1944 and is best known as the aircraft whose missions over Japan helped bring about the end of World War II. It was designed as a replacement for the older B-17s and B-24s, with longer range and greater bomb loads. The airplane represented state-of-the-art technology at the time.
