B-29 Doc and B-25 Berlin Express Extend Travels To Cincinnati

History Restored Tour Arrives At Cincinnati’s Lunken Airport, May 23-27

B-29 Doc and the Experimental Aircraft Association’s (EAA) B-25 Berlin Express will bring the History Restored Tour to Cincinnati’s Lunken Airport, May 23-27. 

The two historic World War II-era aircraft will be hosted by Cincinnati Warbirds EAA Chapter 18.

The tour stop will include ride flights for B-29 Doc and B-25 Berlin Express, along with ground and cockpit tours for both aircraft.

“Teaming up with the EAA and Berlin Express for this event in Cincinnati will give warbird fans a unique opportunity to see the aircraft that helped defend freedom and gave the Allies victory over oppression during World War II,” said Josh Wells, B-29 Doc executive director. “Having both aircraft on tour together allows us to further tell those stories and honor the men and women who have served our nation, and who continue to fight to protect freedom at home and abroad.”

“Cincinnati has traditionally been a wonderful stop for our touring aircraft, as people are eager to see these rare pieces of flying history,” said Jeff Toline, EAA’s director of aircraft operations. “Having these airplanes in the region over Memorial Day weekend is also a fitting tribute to those who sacrificed in preserving liberty some 80 years ago. We are very much looking forward to being back in the Tri-State region once again.”

The Cincinnati Warbird EAA Squadron 18 is known for hosting world-class events throughout the year that feature many iconic warbirds.

“It’s great that we are able to host B-29 Doc and B-25 Berlin Express over Memorial Day Weekend as we honor those who made the ultimate sacrifice” said Cincinnati Warbirds President, Jim Stitt

To cap off this special Memorial Day Weekend, Cincinnati Warbirds will hold its annual Swing Dance and USO Show to Honor Veterans the evening of Saturday, May 25 at Coney Island’s Moonlight Pavilion just minutes from Lunken Airport. B-29 Doc and B-25 Berlin Express will arrive in Cincinnati at Lunken Airport Tuesday, May 21 and will be available for ground and cockpit tours Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, May 22-24 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. Ride flights will be available Friday, Saturday and Sunday, May 22-24. Admission for ground and cockpit tours will be $10 per person or $20 per family and tickets will be available at the gate the days of the event.
