ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - The scheduled arrival at the Albany airport of the world’s only flying B-29 Superfortress has been delayed by inclement weather in upstate New York.

The website for the Texas-based Commemorative Air Force says the World War II bomber nicknamed “Fifi” (FEE’-fee) remains grounded by weather Tuesday at the Rochester airport.

The restored warplane made a visit to Binghamton last week and spent the weekend at the Rochester airport. The B-29 was originally scheduled to arrive at Albany International Airport on Monday and stay until Wednesday.

The B-29’s scheduled stop after Albany is the airport in Nashua, New Hampshire, on June 18-21.

The plane’s website says the organization may have to postpone the Albany stop until June 22-23.

At each of its stops, the plane is open to public tours for a $10 admission fee.
