Restored Boeing B-29 Superfortress ‘FiFi’ Takeoff – Filmed From The Cockpit!

 

In this video, we see a truly magnificent plane, the Boeing B-29 Superfortress, affectionately known as ‘FiFi.’ 

This Superfortress was built by the aircraft company Boeing at the Renton factory in Washington. Its serial number is 44-62070. It was based in Kansas, starting its service life in 1945. After the war it was converted to an administrative plane. But such a beautiful machine could not stay still for long. In 1953 it returned to the skies, only to be retired in 1958.
