Flying giant: Crewman Shad Morris, above left, does some post-flight check-up aboard the B-29 Superfortress that landed Monday at Buffalo Niagara International Airport for a visit to Western New York. Co-pilot Steve Swift, center, leans through a hatch on the World War II-era heavy bomber, nicknamed Fifi, to talk with other crew members. It is the only B-29 in the world that still can fly. World War II veteran Walter Raet, of Cheektowaga, takes a snapshot of Fifi at the airport. He said it's the first B-29 he's seen since he was a soldier in 1945.
