“The B-29 Doc History Restored Tour provides unique, one-of-a-kind access to the type of airplane that helped deliver the end of World War II in the Pacific against Japan for the Allied Forces,” said Josh Wells, B-29 Doc executive director. “When people have a chance to fly in Doc or climb inside one of only two remaining B-29 Superfortress bombers, it brings to life the stories of the men and women who designed, built, flew and maintained these historic warbirds.
