B-29 Doc Heads to the Terre Haute Air Show, June 1-2

Doc Is One Of The Last Of The 1,644 B-29 Superfortress Aircraft Built By Boeing

A rare World War II bomber will be joining the Terre Haute Air Show as a static performer.

Doc, one of 1,644 B-29 Superfortress aircraft built by The Boeing Company in Wichita, Kan, during World War II, will be available for ride flights along with ground and cockpit tours during the show.

“This is a unique opportunity for our community to witness living history right here in Terre Haute,” said Air Show President Jordan Brown. “People all across the midwest will be coming to catch a glimpse.”

Each year, B-29 Doc travels to cities across the United States to allow aviation enthusiasts a chance to see Doc up-close and personal. Tour stops include ground and flight deck tours, as well as B-29 Doc Flight Experiences. The B-29 Doc Flight Experience will last approximately 90 minutes and includes a 30-minute ride. Prior to takeoff, passengers will experience a crew briefing and learn more about the history of the B-29 and the role it played in U.S. history. Passengers will also get to hear and see the sights and sounds of engine starts and run-ups prior to takeoff. Ride flights will be available at 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. May 31st through June 2nd.

“Experience the iconic B-29 Superfortress in the air, on the ground and in the cockpit,” said Brown. “We have a limited supply of GA tickets available for $25.00, but they’re selling fast. Get your tickets before they’re gone.”

Tickets to the Terre Haute Air Show featuring the U.S. Navy Blue Angels are available now. Ticket options include General Admission, Pilots Lounge and Seating Areas with Shaded Tents.
