My grandson and I went to the Warbirds airshow at Valiant Air Command in Titusville today. Lots of flying classics including Tico Belle - a genuine D-Day participant C-47 that did a drop of 14 WW2 equipped paratroopers, 2 Mustangs, a Corsair, 3 Mitchells, Mig-17, Sabre, Skyhawk, F-16, an aerobatic Beechcraft 18 of all things, lots of Texans and various others but the star for me was Fifi - I didn't realize this was the only flying B-29 anywhere.

Sorry the quality isn't great - all I had was my small point and press camera.

Not jealous at all!

Great pics. Thanks for sharing.
Just thought I'd let you know that FIFI isn't the only airworthy B29 anymore.

All the best.
