WWII B-29 Superfortress due to land at Albany International Airport

ALBANY, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A piece of World War II history is making its way to the Capital Region.

The Air Force’s iconic B-29 Superfortress will land Monday at Albany International Airport.

Last year its visit was cut short because of the weather. But because of the overwhelming response the Superfortress is back this year set to land at the airport at noon.

The B-29 Superfortress was first flown in 1942 and its missions over Japan helped bring an end to World War II.

The commemorative aircraft will be on display to the public from Wednesday until Sunday and to get a closer look it costs $10 for adults and $5 for kids.

The commemorative Air force honors the men and women, who built and flew these planes.
