Many of the aircraft in the CAF fleet are very rare, including the only flying example of the Boeing B-29 Superfortress FIFI, Curtiss SB2C Helldiver. Others – such as the Consolidated B-24A Liberator Diamond 'Lil, Bell P-63 Kingcobra fighter, Douglas SBD Dauntless and the Bell P-39 Airacobra fighter– are one of only two or three of that type still flying today. Rare Axis aircraft operated by the CAF include an original Japanese Mitsubishi A6M3 "Zero" carrier-based fighter. These aircraft are all flown regularly in support of the CAF mission. These aircraft are restored, maintained and flown by our elite force of member/volunteers known as Colonels. These aircraft are assigned to CAF units around America and are often available for your events, fly-overs, tours and rides.
