A flying fortress landed in Henderson Wednesday for the first of a four-day stay.
The famous B-29 Superfortress landed at the Henderson Executive Airport. It was accompanied by other World War II aircraft, including a P-51 Mustang, British Spitfire, and Japanese Zero.
The bomber is known as FiFi, and it is the only B-29 Superfortress in the world that is still able to fly. The aircraft was introduced in 1942. It started active duty in 1944. It is best known for being the aircraft from which the first atomic bomb was dropped.
The B-29 was used by the U.S. Air Force in the Pacific Theatre of World War II and during the Korean War. It was used extensively until the late 1950s.
The public can see the aircraft staring at 2 p.m. The bomber will be on static display and will be available for rides. To book a ride, go to airpowertour.org.
