We have a little more news from Doc’s Friends about the restoration of B-29 Super Fortress ‘Doc’ at their base in Wichita, Kansas. They are continuing to work with the FAA on the last few items remaining on the punch list before they receive the B-29’s airworthiness certificate. The team reckons they have completed just over 90% of the checks/fixes necessary to achieve this goal, and are hoping to have the FAA inspectors return at the end of April/first week of May for the final run through. With a severe weather system approaching Wichita this weekend, Doc’s Friends has found temporary hangar space with Air Capital Flight Line to protect the aircraft and wait out the storms over the next couple of days. Work will continue of course, and we are all looking forwards to that day, sometime soon, when Doc finally feels air under her wings again. With many thanks to everyone at Doc’s Friends for providing their latest video update (see below).
