The B-29 Doc History Restored Tour will land in Great Bend where Doc will be one of the featured performers at the 2024 Great Bend Airport Airfest, Sept. 20-22.
The tour stop will include B-29 Doc Flight Experience rides, along with ground and cockpit tours of B-29 Doc, which is one of 1,644 B-29 Superfortress aircraft built by the Boeing Company in Wichita during World War II.
“The historic significance of B-29 Doc returning to Great Bend for our air show this year helps tell the story of the ‘Battle of Kansas’ – which was the project of building, modifying and delivering B-29s to the U.S. Army Air Forces during World War II,” said Great Bend Airport Manager and Airfest Director Martin Miller. “Great Bend Army Airfield (now known as Great Bend Municipal Airport) played a major role in the initial training of flight crews on the B-29. Having Doc at our air show in September will offer a unique perspective of our airport’s legacy and history.”
