B-29 Doc History Restored Tour: New Century, KS

June 14 - June 16

UPDATE: 6/15

The schedule for the B-29 Doc History Restored Tour stop at New Century Airport has changed due to aircraft maintenance and weather for Saturday, June 15:

Ground and cockpit tours will begin at 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 15 and will end at 3:30 p.m. B-29 Doc ride flights that were scheduled for 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. have been rescheduled for 5 p.m. and 6 p.m., respectively. All ride passengers have been notified via text message and should arrive to check-in at 4 p.m. for the 5 p.m. flight (originally 9 a.m. flight) and at 5 p.m. for the 6 p.m. flight (originally 11 a.m. flight).

The schedule for Sunday, June 16 remains as previously announced: B-29 Doc ride flights at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m., followed by ground and cockpit tours from 12:30 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. on Sunday, June 16.

Additionally, the EAA’s B-25 Berlin Express has canceled its appearance at New Century, June 14-16, due to a lack of pre-sales for ride tickets.

“Unfortunately, our B-25 tour stop scheduled for this weekend in Cincinnati has been canceled, as EAA did not reach the required level of pre-bookings to bring the aircraft to Cincinnati,” said Jeff Toline, EAA’s director of aircraft operations. “

All advance B-25 Berlin Express ticket purchases will be refunded.

The B-29 Doc History Restored Tour will land at New Century Airport and in Gardner, KS, June 14-16.

The tour stop will include B-29 Doc, one of 1,644 B-29 Superfortress aircraft built by the Boeing Company in Wichita, KS, during World War II and one of only two still flying today, and B-25 Berlin Express, a B-25 Mitchell, which spent time twice during the war at the North American Aviation B-25 Fairfax factory in Kansas City, KS.

The tour stop hosted by the Commemorative Air Force Heart of America Wing will include flight experience rides on B-25 Berlin Express and B-29 Doc, along with ground and cockpit tours of both aircraft when they are not flying.
