A rare vintage World War II bomber is coming to North Bay next week.  

A B29 Superfortress is arriving at Jack Garland airport in North Bay and will be open to the public from August 8 to 12. 

The vintage aircraft is coming here as part of the 2018 Canadian Flying tour.  

Nicknamed  “FIFI”, this legendary aircraft is one of only two flying B29’s remaining from the Second World War era and will be available for both interior tours and flights during its stay at YYB.  

“FIFI is part of aviation history and we are pleased to have their tour include the Jack Garland airport in North Bay,” says Kelly Hewitt, YYB’s Commercial Development Manager.  

“North Bay has a rich military aviation history and this tour coincides with the NORAD’s 60th anniversary and our airport’s 80th anniversary.”
