Flight Engineer's station. Interesting, I didn't know the pilots did not control the engine power, they had to communicate commands to the flight engineer to operate the throttles.

Nice pictures. I have had an opportunity to step inside her.

Also, Doc (based in Wichita, KS) has just gotten her flight certification from the FAA. She will be joining Fifi soon!

Nice. I have seen her up close and personal too.




PaxMondo -> RE: Bomber Porn - Fifi in Albany NY (6/22/2016 4:26:52 AM)

Yeah, she's here in Phoenix a lot. Both I and my youngest have 'prowled' through her several times.

Yeah, easy for you to do you live pretty close now. Must have driven passed it a dozen times (on my way to somewhere else) and never made time for a visit, d'oh.[sm=nono.gif]
