Happy Belated Birthday to the Boeing B-29! 🥳
Shame on me... I missed an airplane birthday yesterday! On September 21, 1942, the first of three Boeing XB-29 prototypes departed on its first flight from Boeing Field in Seattle, Washington. The flight was piloted by Edmund T. “Eddie” Allen, Director of Aerodynamics and Flight Research, and Al Reed, Chief of Flight Test and Chief Test Pilot.

Operation Eiche - lead by Otto Skorzeny, twelve gliders landed on a small plateau at the foot of the Campo Imperatore, 2,100 metres above sea level to rescue the Benito Mussolini. - 12th September 1943
Here, men of the 1st Battalion Fallschirmjager-Regiment 7 wave him off after the rescue. Mussolini’s silhouette can just be made out in the back of the departing plane.

To get from Seattle to Vancouver, for example, the total journey by conventional airplane would take just over 3 hours of flight time and produce 53.15kg of CO2 per passenger. The same journey by car would take 2.5 hours at an environmental cost of 23.62kg of CO2 per passenger. Trains take double that time, or 5 hours, at less than a third of the carbon cost, 7.75kg of CO2 per passenger. And the Airlander 10 takes the second longest, 4 hours, but at the least carbon cost, 4.61kg of CO2 per passenger.
Airlander also cites a "significant advantage" in not having to rely on airport infrastructure. The airships can take off and land from "any reasonably flat surface," Grundy told CNN. "That includes water."
HAV doesn't plan to compete with long-haul flights or routes already well-served by high-speed rail, Grundy told CNN. The focus will be to connect cities a few hundred miles apart where the carbon pollution savings will be maximized.
HAV plans to develop all-electric powered airships by 2030 that would allow for travel with an even smaller carbon footprint. Even though the prototype is still a concept design, engineering and regulatory demands have guided HAV's plans and that the product is "practical, feasible, and ready for the transition into production,"
