ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The world’s only flying B-29 Superfortress bomber is flying to New York state.

FIFI (FEE-fee) begins a three-day visit to Albany International Airport on Monday afternoon and will be parked at Million Air. Visitors may tour the B-29 and purchase rides.

FIFI is celebrating its 41st year of flight with the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) and is visiting airports throughout the United States this year as part of the CAF AirPower History Tour. The tour brings aircraft, pilots and crews from over 60 CAF units together to create an ever-changing assortment of touring military aircraft.

The Boeing B-29 Superfortress was first flown in 1942 and began active service in 1944. It’s best-known as the aircraft whose atomic bomb missions over Japan helped bring about the end of World War II.
