Woohoo! Doc can finally leave the nest!
It will be great to have another B-29 on tour. Hope it gets to Denver soon.
Great news! Please take care of him.
I keep thinking, that even with a simiar expenditure of time talent and treasure applied to refubishing my frame and parts, I wouldn't look or operate nearly as good. Great job by a great crew. Hope to see it in the flesh someday.
If you folks get a chance, go see "Doc"...they have done a magnificent job restoring the old bird, and as Michael said, can finally leave the nest.
I was the Electronic Flight Chief for the 360th Bomber Squadron 303rd Bomb Wing, (Responsible for maintenance of the Radar Bomb sight & Navigation Equipment on 15, B-29,s), during the earl days of the Korea War. i DID FLY ON THE b-29 SEVERAL Times during this period. Nothing like a SAC maximum effort with 45, B29's all in the air at the same time, a thrill which will never happen again
