Check this video out...


Really good stuff here.  Five cameras in the cockpit.  Full audio and video of all preflight checks, tower comms, takeoff procedures, cruise, landing procedures and landing

Got to enjoy the calm, cool pilot (flying in the right seat) as he calls out flaps settings and engine RPMs he desires during landing. Did not realize that throttle control and flaps are handled separately by the "engine man" in the back of the cockpit.

Well worth 20 Min.

Gets one start thinking about a B-29 build!

(This is "Fifi", one of two B-29s still flying.)
