According to the Witchita Eagle, the B-29 Doc might be flyable in time for Oshkosh. Regardless it should fly this year. It would be great to see 2 B-29's fly together.

That would indeed be great news! I have read somewhere about the new funding they have secured. Now all we need is a B-36 to fly again?

"DOC" the B-29 is now on the Air Show circuit and has been given rave reviews. For the first time in MANY years 2 B-29's have seen in the skies again. A Wonderful sight!!!
