B-29: A piece of flying history

Check out one of the only two WW II B 29 bombers still flying.

If you’ve ever been around Bossier City, odds are you’ve seen and heard the Boeing B-52 Stratofortress flying overhead. These monstrous aircraft continue to serve this country and they come from a long line of Boeing bombers since World War II. One of the predecessors is the Boeing B-29. Only two still fly. One of which still travels around to remind us of our history. FIFI is her name and she travels the country with the Commemorative Air Force, bringing WWII history to life. One of the only two WW II B-29 bombers still flying, this is a ride like no other and an incredible piece of our flying history. Our friends over at Tennessee Valley Weekend takes you inside the cockpit for an exclusive in-flight look at this restored aircraft. This is a great family experience that you will never forget.

B-29s have been spotted at previous Defenders of Liberty Air Shows at Barksdale Air Force Base. Hopefully FIFI or the other B-29 makes an appearance at a future show to continue supporting our flying history.

If you’re looking for other unique aircraft in the Ark-La-Tex, visit the small airfield north of Shreveport where S.H.A.R.K.S. live and play.
