Doc’s Friends Comes to Houston – B29 Experience

THIS IS A ONCE IN A LIFETIME EXPERIENCE – lone star flight museum to host b-29 superfortress “Doc” 

One of only TWO remaining flying B-29’s in the world!

Come take a tour of this historic airplane at Lone Star Flight Museum May 5-9. And come visit us at the Wings Over Houston Airshow booth for a chance to win tickets to this year’s show!

Doc is a B-29 Superfortress and one of 1,644 manufactured in Wichita during World War II. Since 1987 when Tony Mazzolini found Doc sitting and rotting away in the Mojave Desert, plans have been in the works to restore the historic warbird to flying status to serve as a flying museum.

Over the past 15+ years, hundreds of volunteers have worked on Doc and the restoration project. Skilled workers and retirees from Wichita’s aviation industry, veterans, active duty military and others wanting to honor those who served, have spent tens of thousands of hours on Doc’s restoration. And now he is here for you in Houston at the Lone Star Flight Museum! We are happy to be a part of this wonderful experience. Buy your tickets to the museum, come witness history, and stop by our booth to register for a chance at free tickets to this year’s show October 9-10, 2021. We will be giving away multiple rounds of tickets. 

You will not want to miss this historic event! See below for the full schedule.
