FIFI @ Kalamazoo!

FIFI @ Kalamazoo!

Postby PeterR on Mon 20 Aug 2012, 12:57 pm

Very VERY nice surprise, after seeing her display at Thunder over Michigan, we were driving back to Chicago from Detroit and had planned to stop at the 'Air Zoo' museum in Kalamazoo, and when we got there we found out FIFI was there too! She was going to be offering passenger flights the next day, and the crew from the Commemorative Air Force was offering tours around the aircraft the day we were there, which was particularly poignant as it was August 6th - 67 years to the day when a B-29 dropped the Atomtic bomb on Hiroshima.

Didn't take any of the F-14A due to the lighting and positioning of the aircraft, sorry.
