B-29 Doc is one of 1,644 B-29 Superfortresses built by the Boeing Company in Wichita, KS, during World War II. It’s also one of only two B-29s still airworthy and flying today.

LSFM President and CEO, Doug Owens added, “We are looking forward to welcoming B-29 Doc to the museum. Doc is such an impressive aircraft and a WWII legend. This is an amazing opportunity for our members, visitors and supporters to experience the B-29 Doc up close and personal. As supporters of Doc’s Friends, we are proud to join in their efforts to honor, educate and connect people with the history of WWII and the sacrifices made by those who served. I hope Houstonians of all ages come out and take part in this rare opportunity.”

B-29 Doc visitors can enter the event through the Lone Star Flight Museum at 11551 Aerospace Ave., Houston, TX 77034. Museum tickets can be purchased on site or online at LoneStarFlight.org.
