Now That’s An Escort Service.
All of you who follow our Facebook page and the World War Wings blog probably know about the B-29 Superfortress named Doc. Just last year she was cleared to fly again after decades of restoration and is now an active member of the aviation circuit.
Since her certification, Doc already made some historic flights. One of them happened mid year of 2017 when she flew alongside B-29 FIFI, the only other airworthy Superfortress in the world. It’s been decades since these two bombers flew side by side like that but if you haven’t seen it, you can watch it here.
Here, you’ll have another first. During EAA’s AirVenture Oshkosh this year, Doc was joined by the Blue Angels. This my friends is a thing to witness. Not only do you have a rare piece of history flying above you but also one of the best display teams in the world escorting it. We can all just wish we were there.
As an added bonus, we’ve also included another video we found. One of the Blue Angel crew members actually grew up in Witchita, Kansas where Doc was being restored and was offered a seat during the display. He took some video from the bubble as the Blues were approaching the bomber. It’s pretty spectacular.
