FIFI and Lil in 3D
The B-24 and B-29 Banner were a collaborative project between our CAF team and Squadron/Signal. The B-24 Banner is 15' x 3' and is attached to the fuselage of "Diamond Lil" when she is on static display. The B-29 Banner is 13' x 3' and is attached to "FIFI's" forward bomb bay when she is on static display.
