WWII-era B-29 bomber lands in Nashua
‘Fifi,’ one of only two World War II-era B-29 bombers that still fly, arrives at Nashua Airport on Monday for this week’s five-day public AirPower History Tour program, which begins Wednesday. The event, run by the Commemorative Air Force (CAF) based in Dallas, will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., Wednesday through Sunday. Visitors ages 18 and up can tour the traveling museum and have access to the ramp for $10 per person; $5 per person for ages 10-17; under age 10, free. Two other historic aircraft that are part of the program – a C-45 Expeditor nicknamed ‘Bucket of Bolts’ and a T-6 Texan – landed shortly after Fifi touched down. Visitors can also take a ride on one of the aircraft. The fees for flying range from $85 to $1,695, depending on aircraft type and seat chosen.
