NASHUA (AP) — A B-29 bomber traveling the country as part of the Commemorative Air Force's AirPower History Tour has arrived in New Hampshire.

Patch reports "Fifi," a B-29 Superfortress that began active service in 1944 and flew missions over Japan during World War II, landed on the runway of Nashua Airport on Monday.

CAF's Glen Mount says Fifi is the only B-29 Superfortress left in the world that can still fly. He says he's been told there are about 30 or so on display in museums across the globe.

Visitors can take a tour of the iconic aircraft and several others at the airport from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday through Sunday.
