B-29 Doc will attend the Kansas City Air Show, July 6-7, at Charles B. Wheeler Downtown Airport, Doc’s Friends and Kansas City Air Show organizers announced today.
Doc will arrive in Kansas City Friday, July 5 and will be on static display during the show at Charles B. Wheeler Downtown Airport. B-29 Doc Flight Experiences will also be offered Sunday, July 7 and Monday, July 8, following the airshow.
