ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) - A visit to the Albany airport by the world’s only flying B-29 Superfortress has been postponed until next week.

The Texas-based Commemorative Air Force says the World War II bomber nicknamed “Fifi” (FEE’-fee) will visit the Albany International Airport on Monday and Tuesday.

The restored bomber was originally scheduled to be at the Albany airport this past Monday and stay until Wednesday. But inclement weather kept the plane grounded in Rochester, where it spent the weekend after a visit to the Binghamton airport.

The B-29’s next scheduled stop is the airport in Nashua, New Hampshire, from Thursday to Sunday.

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