The Commemorative Air Force’s Boeing B-29 Superfortress, FIFI, is one of only two B-29s in the world still flying. The airplane was acquired by the CAF in the early 1970s when a group of CAF members found her at the U.S. Navy Proving Ground at China Lake, California where she was about to be used as a missile target. The airplane was rescued and restored and has flown over forty years thanks to the many volunteers who contribute their time, talent, and treasure. And thanks to thousands of FIFI fans around the world who have generously donated money to keep her airworthy.
Our urgent need for FIFI this year is money for paint. It has been over 20 years since FIFI received a new coat. In order to preserve the plane for generations to come, we need to protect her from the elements. The CAF B-29/B-24 Squadron is trying to raise an additional $200,000 to get that job done and . Please help us preserve and protect this priceless artifact from World War II by donating today.
