B-29 Doc Adds New Orleans To Its Tour Schedule For April 29-May 2

Doc Will Arrive In New Orleans April 26

The B-29 Doc History Restored Tour will land in New Orleans, LA, April 29 through May 2.

The four-day event will be hosted by Lakefront Airport and Flightline First. It will be the first visit to New Orleans for B-29 Doc, which is one of only two B-29 Superfortresses still airworthy today.

Doc will arrive in New Orleans April 26 and will be available for ground and cockpit tours April 29 and 30 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. B-29 Doc Flight Experience rides will be available at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m., Saturday, May 1 and Sunday, May 2, followed by ground and flight deck tours on those days from 12 p.m. to 4 p.m. Admission for the static display event and flight deck tours will be $10 per person.

Visitors can enter the event through the historic terminal building at New Orleans Lakefront Airport (6001 Stars & Stripes Blvd., New Orleans, LA, 70126). Tickets for static ground and flight deck tours can be purchased at the event.

The tour stop in New Orleans follows previously announced locations for the B-29 Doc History Restored Tour in Fayetteville, AR, Monroe, LA, and Mobile, AL.

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 on 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. Countless individuals and organizations also made financial and in-kind contributions to keep the project going.
