B-29 Doc Stays BUSY! Joins Sound of Speed St. Joseph Air Show

The Tour Stop Will Include B-29 Doc Flight Experience Rides

B-29 Doc is set to join a pretty impressive list of aviation performers at the 2024 Sound of Speed Air Show in St. Joseph, Mo., Sept. 14-15.

The tour stop will include B-29 Doc Flight Experience rides, along with ground and cockpit tours of Doc, which is one of 1,644 B-29 Superfortress aircraft built by the Boeing Company in Wichita during World War II.

“Adding B-29 Doc to our 2024 air show lineup brings a unique opportunity for air show attendees to see one of only two B-29s still flying today,” said Sound of Speed Air Show Chairman Julius Rice. “Doc’s flight crew and team are committed to sharing the history and significance of the B-29 by letting people climb inside the warbird to get a first-hand and up-close look at what was the world’s first all-electric, pressurized, high-altitude long-range bomber. Getting to see a B-29 in person is one thing, but getting a chance to climb inside and even fly in one, is a once-in-a-lifetime experience.”

B-29 Doc Flight Experience tickets are on sale now for Doc’s appearance at the Sound of Speed Air Show in St. Joseph. 

B-29 Doc will arrive in St. Joseph, Mo, at Rosecrans Memorial Airport Thursday, Sept. 12 and will be available for B-29 Doc Flight Experience rides Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 13-15 prior to and following the air show. In addition to ride flight opportunities Doc will be on static display during the air show Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 14 and 15 with ground and cockpit tours.
