Doc the B29 is the last known airworthy b29 in the entire world. It’s a coincidence that it came by Deer Valley (DVT) this weekend considering it’s memorial day weekend, and it could’ve been anywhere else.
I went out to see it up close because it’s a piece of flying history.
Special shout-out to
@slavog on instagram for giving me the opportunity to use his tamron 150-600mm lens!
here she is resting after coming in from her 2nd flight of the day, preparing for her third
departing DVT’s 25L for a quick 35min scenic flight
overflying the airport to enter a left downwind for 25L
DVT isn’t really meant to handle larger aircraft so Doc has to shut down engines 1 and 4 to taxi.
thanks for viewing my topic of flying aviation history!
What a beauty! I had a B-17 fly over me a few days ago
I thought there were two B-29s still flying? Did something happen to the other one?
Nope, Fifi is still flying and based at Dallas Executive Airport. Fifi flew today in Augusta, Georgia.
Nice! Doc is acually based out of my home airport (KICT), cool to see it flying around sometimes
I saw the aircraft when it came to Denver.
I’m still editing my photos of the aircraft though!
No it isn’t there is also FIFI in Dallas
She is isn’t she!!
that was my bad, i forgot about fifi
Definitely! Awesome to see it here in phoenix!
She totally is!
awesome! glad they are still flying
Great pics! I saw this one when it came to the California Capital Airshow in 2018
That is one beautiful bird… we must protect it at all cost haha 😂
