It looks like you are in the right town, Sir! We attended one of the Expos there in 1985. GREAT SHOWS!! I was flying a friend's Mig 15. I was told by their factory pilots that it was the best flyer of all of their birds. I never did get to see the B-29 fly but sure would have liked to! I wonder what happened to it??

I had the opportunity to see the B29 fly at one of Byrons expos. The vertical fin was over 6 foot tall. As it rolled down the runway and lifted off.......the nose gear fell off. The pilot continued the routine then lined up to land. The whole crowd was dead silent. The plane landed and rolled down the runway on the main gear only. As it slowed down, the pilot guided it onto the grass and gently put the nose down. Never knew who the pilot was, but he was damned good.
