“Doc” The B-29 Takes To The Skies Today After Being Grounded For 42 Years

“Doc” the B-29 lifted into the skies for the first time in 60 years today.  The B-29 took off from McConnell Air Force Base on a warm summer morning.  The aircraft has undergone a painstaking restoration that has taken 60 years.  The B-29 is now the second airworthy aircraft of it’s type.  It joins Fifi as the other active B-29 bomber.

You can read more about the first flight in a great news story published by the Wichita Eagle. We also recommend following Doc’s Friends on Facebook for updates!
