Is there a Sweeter Sound? Beautiful B-29 “Fifi” Starts Her Engines

Hear the roar as a B-29 Superfortress revs its engines.

Here’s Part Two of our trip back in time. Again, our thanks to the folks at the Commemorative Air Force and their tireless work in restoring vintage World War II aircraft to display and flying condition.

If you love the sound of four piston engines roaring to life, this is the video for you. Our post earlier today featured the B-17 Flying Fortress, the work horse bomber of World War II. This video features a B-29 Superfortress, which made its debut near the end of WWII and was a major factor in ending the war in the Pacific.

“FIFI” is the only B-29 Superfortress flying. Owned by the CAF, it’s currently based at the Vintage Flying Museum located at Meacham International Airport in Fort Worth, Texas. It makes frequent trips to air shows around the United States.
