Very impressive! Didn’t know that any still existed. Do any ever visit this side of the pond?
The guys who restored this piece of history did a truly remarkable job. DOC is beautiful inside and out. Had an opportunity to tour the aircraft and talk with the crew last year. Considering DOC and FIFI are the only two B29s flying, my hope is that TLC will keep them flying for years to come. Bravo to the crews that maintain and fly them and to those of us who support their efforts.
Looks brand new. Super job.

Every rivet is a piece of art. Look at the reflection of the runway below reflected off the polished skin. Thank you all for saving her.

For some reason it is to me an uncommon sight from this vantage point... we always see them from below, side or front...

So Doc had no turrets ?
