B-29 Doc will spend Memorial Day weekend in in Tulsa, Okla., May 25 and 26. The Tulsa Air and Space Museum & Planetarium (TASM) will host B-29 Doc for a two-day event that will feature both static display and cockpit tours, as well as B-29 Doc Flight Experience ride flights.
B-29 Doc will be joined by a North American T-6 Texan during the weekend tour stop at TASM.
