Woohoo! Doc can finally leave the nest!
It will be great to have another B-29 on tour. Hope it gets to Denver soon.
Great news! Please take care of him.
I keep thinking, that even with a simiar expenditure of time talent and treasure applied to refubishing my frame and parts, I wouldn't look or operate nearly as good. Great job by a great crew. Hope to see it in the flesh someday.
If you folks get a chance, go see "Doc"...they have done a magnificent job restoring the old bird, and as Michael said, can finally leave the nest.
I was the Electronic Flight Chief for the 360th Bomber Squadron 303rd Bomb Wing, (Responsible for maintenance of the Radar Bomb sight & Navigation Equipment on 15, B-29,s), during the earl days of the Korea War. i DID FLY ON THE b-29 SEVERAL Times during this period. Nothing like a SAC maximum effort with 45, B29's all in the air at the same time, a thrill which will never happen again
Gerald Collins: I don't know which Sq. my father in law flew with during Korea.He was Maj. Ernest E. Booth. He had been an instructor pilot during WWII, finishing in Boise, ID. Flew in the Berlin Airlift (wife and young daughter moved to war torn Germany to live during that period!?!) He flew in Korea and then with SAC. Finished his career as ops. commander at Loring AFB.Thanks for your service.
