The last B-29 "Superfortress" still flying IS IN in Richmond this week.
"Fifi" is a restored version of the planes that carried bombs to Japan in World War Two.
The Confederate Air Force also brought one of only two B-24 Liberators still flying.

((ROBERT COATS/FORMER B-24 CREWMAN: YOU REALLY WEREN'T EXPECTED TO RETURN SO-- I KEEP IN MIND THE NUMBER OF FELLOW FLYERS THAT DID NOT MAKE IT HOME.))

((J.B. HUDSON/FORMER B-29 CREWMAN: I THINK IT'S A MISSION OF THOSE OF MY GENERATION TO MAKE CERTAIN THAT HISTORY IS RETOLD CORRECTLY. AND THAT'S WHAT WE DO WITH THESE PLANES. WE FLY AROUND THE COUNTRY. AND IT'S SORT OF LIKE A MUSEUM FLYING TO THE PEOPLE.))

(----------------)


Four thousand Superfortresses rolled off the assembly line during World War Two.
The "Enola Gay," which dropped the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima, is the most famous B-29.
There is NO plan to bring the planes to Roanoke because NO agreement could be reached with airport officials to display them.
