It's scheduled to be at the Chennault International Airshow this weekend.  Never seen FIFI but I have seen the P51 Mustang Quicksilver and the B25 Panchita at our local air show two years ago.  Love the sound of those Packard built Rolls Royce Merlin engines.

Here is one of my favorite videos of FiFi I had saved from Youtube.



Since I like trains I've always been partial to the B-29 Bockscar. This one is on display at Wright Patterson Air Force Base Museum. We always go up there once or twice a year. It's amazing being inside one of these...you wonder how they even flew let alone fought in a war.

I've been to wright patterson air force base museuem several times.  My father loves old planes, and I enjoy them but not as fanatical about them as he is.  Its a good time for us, and we try to go up every few years.  We have seen a lot of famous planes there.


We went to see Glacier girl one time.  Drove several hours because the P38 is one of my Dad's favorite planes.
