Flying in the B-29 Superfortress: Another Living List Wish Granted!

September 22, 2018

Peter and Reg have always wanted to fly in the Boeing B-29 Superfortress (FIFI). The B-29 is a four-engine propeller-driven heavy bomber designed by Boeing, which was flown primarily by the United States during World War II and the Korean War. It was one of the largest aircraft operational during World War II and featured state-of-the-art technology.

Their wish became even more special when they learned that the pilot of the B-29, Jeff Skiles, was the co-pilot to Sully Sullenberger on the day he landed US Airways Flight 1549 in the Hudson River off Manhattan after both engines were disabled by a bird strike.

What an experience to remember!
