B-24 And P-51 Will Accompany "Fifi"
The Commemorative Air Force's iconic Boeing B-29 Superfortress bomber, Fifi-- the only remaining flying example of the aircraft in the world --- is coming to the Carolinas Aviation Museum in Charlotte, North Carolina on May 25. The B-29 will arrive with the B-24, Diamond Lil, an equally rare World War II bomber and one of only two still flying.
The Brat III, an actual combat veteran P-51 Mustang from the Cavanaugh Flight Museum, will accompany the bombers. All three airplanes will be on display at the Carolinas Aviation Museum, 4678 First Flight Drive, Charlotte, North Carolina.
"This is a rare opportunity for people in our community to see the aircraft which won WWII," said Shawn Dorsch, President of the Museum. "I have no doubt this exhibit will inspire young people in our community to set their sights higher and become successful in life."
The exhibit is sponsored by BAE Systems, Inc. and the Dowd Foundation and will be at Museum from May 25 to May 30. The exhibit will be open to the public on Friday, May 25 from 1200-1700 EDT; Saturday, May 26, 0900-1700; Sunday, May 27, from 1200-1700; and Monday, May 28, from 0900-1700 and Tuesday and Wednesday, May 29 through 30, from 1000-1600.
