the only operational B-29 I know of is FIFI.

Namvet, here's some news for you about FIFI. Yesterday, they did a test flight, but had to make an emergency landing. Here's the story: http://www.mywesttexas.com/top_stories/article_25d301ed-2f1e-5715-a36e-87fcff43056e.html

The HQ of the Commemorative Air Force is here in Midland. I've been a member off and on - right now off due to so much else going on. But back about 2 or 3 years ago when they first started restoring her I was pretty active, and was in the hanger a lot when all they were stripping her down and restoring her.

The CAF Airsho is coming up Oct 9-10.
Here is info about the show:

I love that whole week before the weekend show, when all those classic planes start flying in and practicing. I don't even have to leave my house to watch the show, they all fly right over me. FIFI will definitely be the star of the show this year.
