B-29 Doc History Restored Tour at the Palm Springs Air Museum

September 27 - September 28

After a 15+ year restoration project, Doc begins flight operations.

The B-29 Doc History Restored Tour will head west for the month of September for five tour stops, which will include visits to three historic aviation museums and the 2022 MCAS Miramar Air Show near San Diego, CA.

The September tour for B-29 Doc will include the following cities:

  • Pueblo, CO: Sept. 9-11
  • Chino, CA, Sept. 14-18
  • San Diego, CA: Sept. 21-25
  • Palm Springs, CA: Sept. 27-28
  • Inyokern, CA: Sept. 30-Oct. 2

The Pueblo Wiesbrod Aircraft Museum, Yanks Air Museum and the Palm Springs Air Museum will be three of the hosts for B-29 Doc in September. In addition to the museum visits, Doc will be a static performer at the 2022 MCAS Miramar Air Show, which is the largest military air show in the United States with an estimated 700,000+ attendees over three days. And wrapping up the month, Doc will make a return stop to Inyokern, CA, where its new life and current mission began.

“It’s an honor to be hosted by three historic and renowned air museums, all of which share our passion and mission of maintaining warbirds and aircraft to ensure our nation’s rich aviation history lives on,” said Josh Wells, B-29 Doc executive director. “Together, we work to continue our joint mission of honoring the legacy of the Greatest Generation, as well as those who have fought and continue to fight to defend our freedom at home and abroad. We are looking forward to working with these museums to give people a unique, up-close and personal experience with a B-29 Superfortress.”

All tour stops in September will include ground and cockpit tours, as well as B-29 Doc Flight Experience rides. Tickets for ride flight experience are on sale now at www.b29doc.com/rides, or available by calling the B-29 Doc Box Office at 316-260-4312, option 3.

“Attending the MCAS Miramar Air Show is a true honor and we look forward to sharing the B-29 Doc story and its legacy with those who attend,” Wells continued. “And of course, making a return trip to Inyokern and the area around China Lake Naval Air Weapons Station where Doc was rescued from the bombing range is always humbling. The tour stop at Inyokern is a way for us to say ‘thank you’ to the volunteers who worked tirelessly to kick-start Doc’s new mission.”

To date, B-29 Doc has logged 102 flight hours during the 2022 tour season, which began in early April, and has included stops in 19 cities across 11 states. B-29 Doc will depart its home base in Wichita on Sept. 8 and will return to the B-29 Doc Hangar, Education and Visitors Center on Oct. 3.
