Isn't it that B-29 they've recovered and later it went into flames...? Or is it another one?
Yes - agter being restored the B-29 was taxiing for takeoff when fuel spilled on the APU and set the tail on fire; the fire spread and destroyed the aircraft. A very sad ending.
The only good part was that the crew escaped - if it had happened once the plane was airborn then their probably have been fatalities.
