    I saw that as on original show on PBS about 20 years, damn near started to cry at the end. Fast forward when the B29 "FIFI" was at Canadian Warplane Heritage in Hamilton, my daughters and wife bought me a 45 minute ride for my birthday, It was scheduled for the first days showing. That was good timing as the rest of the time they were at Hamilton the weather would not permit any flights with non staff and crew on board. That was a thrill of a lifetime.
    I have always been fascinated by the old warbirds, and now the federal government has gifted outright to the museum instead of on loan 3 plane, 1( Spitfire MK9, 2 ( Avro Canada CF100 Canuck, 3( North American Sabre. They are going to make the Spitfire airworthy, which should not involve a lot as it has been stored inside most of it's life.
