B-29 FIFI to Offer Rides At Oshkosh
June 15, 2017 - FIFI, a B-29 Superfortress owned and operated by the Commemorative Air Force, will be doing more than sitting on static display on Boeing Plaza at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh 2017; FIFI will also offer AirVenture attendees the chance to experience flying in a B-29.
The “Living History” rides offered by the CAF are unique and rare opportunities for aviation enthusiasts. B-29s are some of the rarest bombers in existence, with only two flyable examples remaining, both of which will be in Oshkosh this year.
FIFI riders get to experience history and see different perspectives of what life was like for the crew of a Superfortress, as riders can sit where bombardiers and gunners sat, and near where the pilots of the massive bomber sat during World War II.
Seats on FIFI are limited, and can be reserved ahead of time at the CAF’s AirPower Tour website. Flights depart from Appleton International Airport on Wednesday and Thursday during AirVenture.
