Doc Is In.

There is a lot to be said about Doc, the legendary Boeing B-29 Superfortress because he has had a very long journey. After spending decades in a desert boneyard it narrowly avoided death to become one of the last flyable B-29s on the planet. Doc has traveled a long road from the desert and back into the skies but now he’s about to find a permanent home.

Through a massive restoration effort, Doc went from rotting away in the desert to soaring in the skies. Doc’s Friends, the organization that was responsible for putting this B-29 back into the skies announced that they are building 28,000 ft hangar for Doc. The facility will be located in Wichita, Kansas near Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport with a mission to inform the public on aviation history.

“It’s a place where kids and families and groups can come and learn about Doc, the technology of Doc, the history of Doc and perpetuate the airplane.”

– Jeff Turner (Chairman of Doc’s Friends)
