CAF Squadron arrives at Martin State

The Commemorative Air Force brought its B-29 FiFi, P-51, C-45 and Navy Helldrver torpedo aircraft to Martin State Airport on June 3-5.  Hundreds of people turned out to see the World War II vintage aircraft and some purchased rides on the planes.  Fifi made one flight on Wednesday and people were thrilled just to see the last flying B-29 takeoff and land.  The other craft flew all three days and the sounds of rotary engines often filled the air.
