For Low and Slow Texans everywhere

As a reward for wading through thousands of words of text, some pictures.


Fifi is from Texas!



The ONLY operational model of the plane that ended the Second World War.




to be cont'd



One of my favorite parts of looking down is seeing our shadow!

A cute story about FIFI as related to me by one of their flight engineers many years ago: They were at a tour stop somewhere when an older gentleman, presumably of the Greatest Generation, was walking around FIFI with his entourage. He was telling them about his (supposed) exploits during WWII when he looked up on the side of the plane and said, "Yeah, back during the war I flew many of these...ah...F1-F1's" :)

I'm sure you had a blast. Good for ya, friend.

We had two such, but they were in wheelchairs and I could not swear they had any idea what was happening. They (and I, and a few reporter-types) were supposed to fly to the Statue of Liberty and back, but for about three reasons, it did not happen.

thanks for sharing, Fin.

You got to ride IN that plane?!! Incredible. How did you manage that?

Fin said...

$$$$$$$$$, an understanding woman and a lot of patience.

When someone writes an article he/she maintains the thought of

Thus that's why this piece of writing is amazing. Thanks!
