B-29 Doc joins EAA AirVenture performer list

B-29 Doc, one of 1,644 B-29 Superfortress aircraft built by the Boeing Company in Wichita during World War II and one of only two B-29 bombers still airworthy and flying today, will be among the performers at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh, July 22-28.

Doc will host B-29 Doc Flight Experience rides from July 22 through July 25 and will be a featured performer at the air show during the week. The historic warbird will also be on static display for ground and cockpit tours on Boeing Plaza, Friday and Saturday, July 26 and 27.

“Doc has been a regular participant at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh over the past decade and its presence is always well-received from our members and visitors,” said Rick Larsen, EAA’s vice president of communities and member programs, who coordinates AirVenture features and attractions. “Seeing the B-29 fly and seeing up-close on display is a highlight for many aviation enthusiasts who come to Oshkosh.”

“Joining the EAA AirVenture performer line-up is a top highlight of our tour season each year,” said Donnie Obreiter, B-29 Doc director of maintenance & chief flight engineer. “Bringing Doc to Oshkosh allows thousands of people a unique opportunity to experience history up close and personal. Operating such a historically significant machine to honor the Greatest Generation is core to our mission and it’s something in which our entire team takes great pride in executing.”
