We’ve Waited For At Least 60 Years To See These Videos. That’s Long Enough!

Well this is the big one warbird fans! We’ve been waiting to see this for decades, and here it is! The world’s only two operational Boeing B-29 Superfortresses flew together over AirVenture 2017 in Oshkosh on July 25th 2017. These two aircraft, the Commemorative Air Force’s B-29A-60-BN Fifi (CN 11547, AF serial number 44-62070) and the recently restored B-29A-70-BW Doc (CN 10804, AF serial number 44-69972) took to the Wisconsin skies simultaneously for the first time. Both of these aircraft were recovered from Naval Air Weapons Stations China Lake in California and restored, but they returned to flight almost 40 years apart. Thanks to our good friends at Airshowstuff for uploading this awesome video of the two B-29s flying together.

Thanks to Airailimages for uploading this momentous video clip!
