SARASOTA, Fla. - The only remaining B-29 Superfortress bomber still flying is now at the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport. It's one of five vintage aircraft on display for the public.

The plane, nicknamed “Fifi”, landed on the Suncoast on Thursday. The B-29 was the plane used to drop the atomic bombs on Japan to end World War II.

Also on display is a PT-17 Stearman Speedmail, a non-military vehicle renowned for setting speed and distance records in the 1930’s.

The display runs through Sunday at the Rectrix Aerodrome on 15th Street East near the Sarasota-Bradenton International Airport.
