B-29 Bomber FiFi

28 May

On March 3, 2015, I grabbed my camera and drove to the Camarillo airport in Camarillo, California near my home. They were flying in the only B-29 bomber that still flies around the country. You heard it before you saw it. It sounded like a freight train was approaching. The noise grew louder until finally, it passed overhead. It was a sight to see. Once it landed, I was lucky enough to get in line and take a tour inside. Once I climbed the ladder into the body of the plane, I kept thinking I can’t believe that these men during the war had to fly, eat, and sleep in this thing while it was flying. I had trouble during the brief ten minutes I spent inside. It was beautiful.  I quickly fell in love with this aircraft and I’m sure many other visitors did the same that day. I left the airport that day with a sense of awe, and a new perspective on flying B-29’s.
