Cincinnati, OH 2011 B-29 Weekend Photo Review
B-29 at Lunken Airport, Cincinnati, OH - June 10-12, 2011 (Photos taken June 12)

The EAA Cincinnati Warbird Squadron 18 and the Commemorative Air Force B-29/B-24 Squadron worked together to bring the world's only flying Boeing B-29 Superfortress, "Fifi", into Lunken Airport for both rides and static tours.  The B-29 was able to take up eight paying riders a total of eight times over the weekend.  When not giving the rides "Fifi' was surrounded by many interested enthusiasts that came out to see this one of a kind warbird, which was supported by several local static warbirds also on display.  This was a great opportunity for the Greater Cincinnati populace to see this excellent selection of historic warbirds.

On final!




A long line of enthusiasts waits in in line to get a closer look at "Fifi".






Lynda Kilbourne had her great looking L-17 on display at the event.
