A visit to the Doc

Well this is exciting. I’ve written a lot about B-29s before and about 44-49972 Doc on a few occasions. I saw it gleaming over in the distance when I visited the wonderful Kansas Aviation Museum a couple of years ago. Now it appears that the aircraft is actually accessible to the public in its new dedicated hangar.

The YouTube video below is from the Doc’s Friends website https://www.b29doc.com/

News about the hangar opening is at https://www.b29doc.com/spend-spring-break-with-doc-b-29-doc-hangar-education-center-launches-public-open-hours/

From the Doc Website and YouTube

The B-29 Doc Hangar and Education Center is located at Eisenhower National Airport 1788 S. Airport Road, Wichita, KS

Apparently you can visit the airplane (admission prices are all on the site) on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays each week starting on March 12 when Doc isn’t on tour.

I think I know where I’ll be going when the Kansas weather improves.
