B-29 Doc Announces Start of 2024 Tour Season

Upcoming 2024 Tour Marks Doc’s Eighth Season Since Its Restoration

The 2024 B-29 Doc History Restored Tour will kick off with a season-opening weekend March 8-10 in Wichita and will coincide with the B-29 Doc & WSU Tech Foundation Pull a Plane event, which is scheduled for Saturday, March 9. 

“The upcoming 2024 tour not only marks Doc’s eighth season since its restoration in 2016 but also launches a year-long tribute commemorating the 80th anniversary of when Doc was built by the Boeing Company in Wichita in 1944,” said Josh Wells, B-29 Doc executive director. “The skilled workforce in Wichita – led by women known as “Rosie the Riveters” – built 1,644 B-29 aircraft during World War II. B-29 Doc is one of those iconic aircraft built in the Air Capital of the World and we are honored to continue to keep the legacy alive of those who designed, built, flew and maintained these machines to project freedom.”

B-29 Doc Flight Experience tickets for the 2024 Tour Season Launch weekend in Wichita are on sale now.  The flights are scheduled for the following dates and times:

  • Friday, March 8: 3:30 p.m. and 4:30 p.m
  • Sunday, March 10: 9 a.m. and 11 a.m.

The B-29 Doc & WSU Tech Foundation Pull a Plane event will also be a highlight within the 2024 Tour Season Launch weekend, March 8-10. 

“Scheduling the 2024 Tour Season Launch Weekend to include Pull a Plane will add an exciting dimension to the launch festivities,” Wells continued. “Partnering with the WSU Tech Foundation on this event provides a unique and one-of-a-kind opportunity to area communities to come together to raise money for WSU Tech student scholarships and to keep Doc’s mission alive. WSU Tech provides scores of opportunities for the next generation of aviation workers. We need those future workers to help keep the aviation industry solid, and to keep Doc flying for generations to come.”

The Pull a Plane event for 2023 was originally scheduled for October but due to Doc’s delayed arrival back to Wichita from a tour stop in Arizona, the event had to be rescheduled. 

“Our partnership with B-29 Doc continues to grow and thanks to this event, we have been able to positively impact dozens of students by providing scholarships to help launch their careers,” said Courtney Sendall, WSU Tech Foundation executive director. “The opportunities generated by this event are countless and we’re looking forward to seeing who can pull Doc the fastest in 2024!”
