Cincinnati, OH: B-29 Doc History Restored Tour

May 22 - May 27

UPDATE: May 26, 2024

Due to the threat of severe weather in the Cincinnati, OH area on Sunday, May 26, and overnight into Monday, May 27, B-29 Doc will relocate to Dayton, OH for shelter.

The weather threat will have the following impacts on the B-29 Doc History Restored Tour in Cincinnati on Sunday and Monday:

  • Sunday, May 26
    • All ride flight operations scheduled for Sunday, May 26 will be suspended until Monday. The flights scheduled for Sunday at 9 and 11 a.m. have been moved to 2 p.m. and 4 p.m., respectively, on Monday, May 27.
    • Ground and cockpit tours will not be available on Sunday, since the aircraft will be relocated to Dayton.
  • Monday, May 27
    • The B-29 Doc ride flights originally scheduled for Monday at 9 and 11 a.m. will be delayed until 10 a.m. and 12 p.m., respectively.
    • Cockpit tours for B-29 Doc will not be available on Monday, but the public can enter the ramp area to watch flight operations from behind a barrier rope.

“The safety of our passengers and crew is our top priority,” said Josh Wells, B-29 Doc executive director. “While it’s disappointing when we have to make changes to our schedule or cancel flights or cockpit tour access, we do not waiver on our commitment to safety. When our tour season runs concurrently with the peak of severe weather season for much of the U.S., the probability is high that we will be impacted by weather. We are grateful for the ability to find shelter to protect Doc from the weather hazards, and more importantly, for the window of opportunity for our crew to safely transition from Cincinnati to Dayton.”

The public will not have access to B-29 Doc while it is sheltered in Dayton, OH. As weather permits, B-29 Doc will return to Cincinnati’s Lunken Airport on Monday, May 27. Updates will be provided on the B-29 Doc social media channels at www.facebook.com/B29Doc and www.twitter.com/b29docsfriends.


UPDATE: May 23, 2024

The B-29 Doc History Restored Tour will be at Cincinnati’s Municipal Airport – Lunken Field, May 23-27 for B-29 Doc ground & cockpit tours and ride flights.

Doc will be hosted by Cincinnati Warbirds EAA Squadron 18 while in Cincinnati.


It was first announced (bel0w) that the EAA’s B-25 Berlin Express would be joining Doc at Cincinnati, but the schedule for the B-25 based in Oshkosh, WI, has changed.

“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.

“We do look forward to seeing B-25 and warbird fans at future B-25 tour stops throughout the country,” Toline continued. “For more information on upcoming B-25 tour stops and pre-booking information, go to www.FlyTheB25.org.”

The announcement about B-25 Berlin Express canceling its appearance in Cincinnati does NOT impact B-29 Doc’s appearance. Ground and cockpit tours will be available Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. both days, and on Saturday and Sunday from 12:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. On Memorial Day, B-29 Doc will be available for tours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., pending its ride schedule.

“We are looking forward to another great weekend in Cincinnati with our friends at Cincinnati Warbirds,” said Josh Wells, B-29 Doc executive director. “This is our fourth time in Cincinnati and each time we are in the Queen City, the response from the community is humbling. Giving people the opportunity to get up close and personal with a B-29 and learn about its mission and the stories of those who designed, built and flew these warbirds to protect freedom during World War II is our mission. And, I can’t think of a better way to execute that mission than to spend time in cities like Cincinnati.”
