B-29 Bomber Plane "Fifi" On Display at Air Show
VANDALIA -- You witnessed the stunts at the Dayton Air Show this weekend, but some also received a history lesson.
The B-29 "Fifi" is the only bomber plane left in the world and those who attended the air show could go inside and enjoy all of its historical features.
You wouldn't believe that Fifi is 68 years old.
"She was delivered exactly one week prior to the dropping of the atomic bomb on Hiroshima, which is probably why she's here today - never went to combat, she was a trainer for many years," said Paul Stojkov, a B-29 flight crew member.
The plane is still running just like the old days.
Our Reporter Annette Peagler got an exclusive look inside the cockpit. She was the only television reporter in the Miami Valley allowed in.
Ten passengers boarded the plane, one remembers Fifi vividly. Robert Chapstick, a World War II veteran, trained on her more than 60 years ago.
"I flew the B-29; it was one great airplane and I would fly it again if I was young enough, but I'm too old to do it," Chapstick said.
The history on this ride made the flight extra special, according to Peagler. While there were many great acts at the Dayton Air Show this weekend, there will be none like Fifi's ride because of that firsthand view of our nation's history.
"Our mission today, obviously we want to remember the veterans, obviously, but it's also important to teach the children, the kids of today, our youth, the next generation, why they are free and they can go to whatever church they want to, they can go to whatever school they want to and that's what gave them the ability," said Stojkov.
