“Giving people in Wichita a chance to see our restored warbird and to showcase the work that’s been accomplished over the past 17 years by our team of volunteers has been a top priority since we began making our air show tour plans,” said Jim Murphy, Doc’s Friends, Inc. program manager. “It’s important for us to connect current and future generations to this one-of-a-kind airplane and share its historic story with Wichita as the air capital of the world.”
The event will be held in the Northwest Hangar on the Air Capital Flight Line property at 3800 S. Oliver. Parking will be available along Oliver in the marked parking lots adjacent to Spirit AeroSystems. A parking map and event detail will be released on the Doc’s Friends website prior to the event.
