B-29 SuperFortress Engine Start / Maintenance Check Flight

The last B-29 in the world operating under the pseudonym "FiFi" This image was taken at the C.A.F air show held at KBUR on March 23 and 24, 2013. I was with my spotter friend Ryan Bomar at this air show. B-29 and other classic aviation videos.

Very nostalgic - to me, an early 50s child, this is the sight and sound of a 'proper' aeroplane! Horrendously expensive on fuel today, but back in the day, the cost was probably only 2 or 3c a gallon to the military, so not a consideration. Kudos to the folk who keep this old girl airworthy.
