B-29 'Fifi'

It's always good to see the CAF's big bomber, the B-29.

Here's a few shots of her in the air, with a few showing the EAA's photo chase plane, Photo 1, doing some air-to-air work alongside.

Getting some shots including some Little Friends (P-51 Mustangs).

Getting a nice overhead view of the showground behind the bomber.

Here's a close up of Photo 1, filled with photographers.

Taxiing in on two engines, with the outer pair shut down. I presume this is to save fuel as much as anything.

The Oshkosh Dot effect...

And finally, after a bomb run, into the sun.
