NASHUA — The last remaining airborne WWII B-29 Superfortress in the world has made a stop at the Nashua Airport at Boire Field.
"FIFI" is part of the Commemorative Air Force Airpower History Tour. The tour is meant to bring WWII aviation history to audiences across the country.
The B-29 Superfortress began active service in 1944 and was a significant part of the U.S. Air Force fleet through the 1950's. It was later restored and has been an attraction at air shows for 40 years.
"We had a 91-year-old Navy veteran today that couldn't get out of the car but his wife pulled him up into the parking lot and he just wanted to sit and look at the plane from that distance," said volunteer pilot Jonathan Oliver. "It brings back so many memories of years ago when those young men were out there fighting so it really means a lot for them to see the airplanes."
FIFI and two other rare aircraft will be available for viewing at the Nashua Airport through Sunday.
Rides are available for a fee. Click here for more information.
