Flying high: Modesto couple touring country as B-29 Fifi crew members

Glen and Mary Mount helped bring the only flying B-29 to Modesto in 2014. Now the Modesto residents are part of a crew that flies Fifi – the same type plane as the ones that dropped atomic bombs on Japan in 1945 – on tours all over the United States. And Glenn Mount will be aboard when another B-29, Doc, flies Sunday for the first time since 1955.
