B-29s served as "motherships," which linked to and lifted post WWII experimental aircraft for release at ignition altitude, including Glamorous Glennis, the Bell XS-1 piloted by Captain Chuck Yeager, the first man to fly faster than sound in controlled, level flight. "FIFI" played "mother" in The Right Stuff, the 1983 film dramatizing test pilot exploits based on Tom Wolfe's 1979 book.
