FG Reporting From Cincinnati Ohio

Sweet William is taking me, Flat George, on an adventure.  He has his piggy bank and it has lots of money sticking out.  Sweet William I think you better pedal faster, we have a car on our tails and I, Flat George, don't want to be any flatter.

Here I am, Flat George, coming to you from Cincinnati, Ohio.  See the pass I have around my neck, bet you cannot guess what this pass is going to allow me, Flat George, to do!  Pass cost $995.  Sweet William The Scot gave me the money from his piggy.

The pass is going to allow me, Flat George, to get on FIfi

The last flying super fortress...still flying and here I am, Flat George, ready to take Fifi up  sitting in the pilot seat.  I am going to be a Flyboy ~ that is what you were called in the 1940's.  Flyboy Flat George sounds good!

O.K. I turned the plane over to my co-pilot to come back and sit in the navigators seat.  I am looking at the map and calculating how much fuel it will take to fly me home to England.  No can do Mom and Dad sorry.

Here I am, Flat George, heading to the back of the plane. See the cockpit behind me.
This World War II plane saw the Pacific Theatre Midway or Guam in the mid-1940's.  Hey do we know anyone in the South Pacific?   I would like to see where this plane use to land.

Fifi is the last B-29 plane still flying.  Fifi is part of the Commemorative Air Force.  Fifi was commissioned in July of 1945 (that is OLD).  She is a 66-year-old warhorse.  Boeing built about 4,000 B-29's. The bombs are fake, but the guns are real.  They don't shoot anymore.  The 33-foot tunnel connecting the cockpit with the rear gunners is still there.
Don't worry I, Flat George, won't touch anything I am not suppose to.  Hey, what does this button that says push do?  

If you hear a loud buzz it might be me over your house!
 Well Flat George, signing out now, somewhere in the sky over the United States.

Flat George took off and buzzed Frankie in Ohio ~ then we went and flapped the wings at Finn in New York ~ buzzed over to Connecticut to wave at Maggie and Mitch ~ then he flew south to buzz Amber DaWeenie and Roo and Puddles in Florida. FG zipped back up to buzz at Oskar in Michigan. Flat George loves being a FlyBoy. Sorry we cannot take the plane out of United States air space.

Hey I was at Lunkin airport and saw Flat George, boy was he getting the royal treatment. They thought he was a celebrity or something. Everybody was asking about him - including myself and Flat George told me about this website to visit. Sorry it took me so long! Love this story and site. I'm glad Sweet Willam gave him his allowance so he could take a ride in this one of a kind plane. Or I should say only one B29 still flying plane.
