The B-29 Doc History Restored Tour will be at Terre Haute Regional Airport for a three-day tour stop, July 12-14.
The Terre Haute tour stop is the second stop for the B-29 Doc History Restored Tour in July that includes visits to a total of seven cities across five states.
“We are excited to bring the full B-29 Doc History Restored Tour back to Terre Haute this year,” said Josh Wells, B-29 Doc general manager and executive director. “Last fall, we spent a few days in Terre Haute and hosted ride flights but due to COVID-19, we were unable to offer cockpit and ground tours. On this visit, visitors will not only be able to fly in B-29 Doc, but they’ll also be able to get an up-close and personal look at the warbird that helped deliver victory in Japan for the Allies during World War II.”
The schedule for the Terre Haute tour stop for B-29 Doc includes ride flight experiences at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. on Tuesday, July 13 and Wednesday, July 14, followed by ground and cockpit torus from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. both days. Details on ride flight ticket availability can be found here: www.b29doc.com/rides. Tickets for ground and cockpit access can be purchased at the gate for $10 per person or $20 per family.
Ride flight passengers and those wanting ground and cockpit access should arrive at Hoosier Aviation (581 S. Airport Street, Terre Haute, IN 47803).
“It’s an honor for our crew to bring B-29 Doc to Terre Haute as we honor the men and women of the Greatest Generation who designed, built, flew and maintained these magnificent machines to protect our freedom. Our mission is to ensure the legacy and stories of the Greatest Generation are passed down to future generations, as we continue to honor the men and women who are still fighting for our freedom at home and abroad,” Wells said.
