B-29 Doc Flight Experience tickets are on sale now at www.b29doc.com/rides. Ground and cockpit tour tickets will be available for purchase on the days of the event at the gate. While the aircraft is on the ground, visitors will be able to climb inside the cockpit through the forward bomb bay to get a look inside one of only two B-29 Superfortresses still airworthy and flying today.

“B-29 Doc provides a unique experience for people to climb inside one of only two remaining B-29 Superfortress bombers and learn about the technological marvel that helped deliver victory to the Allied Forces during World War II,” said Josh Wells, B-29 Doc executive director.

“Our mission is to honor the legacies of the Greatest Generation and the stories of those who designed, built, flew and maintained these historic warbirds to protect freedom.”

“We are excited to welcome “Doc” and crew to Stillwater Regional Airport,” Brandon Ingham, airport operations supervisor said. “It is truly an honor and privilege to host such a storied aircraft and its dedicated team who keep it airworthy. It will be a humbling experience to share our airport with the B-29 Superfortress, one of the most iconic aircraft in American history. We look forward to an incredible weekend and invite everyone to join us.”
