Fifi, the B29 Superfortress

I recently had a chance to photograph "Fifi", a four-engine propeller-driven B29 from the WWII and Korean War era.  It's actually the last of its type to still fly.  As her engines roared to life, thick smoke billowed out and I made this photo with a 400mm lens.  To show some motion on the propellers, the exposure was 1/200. The rig was mounted on a tripod for stability.
