History Restored - Wichita is home to one of only two airworthy Boeing B-29 Superfortress aircraft left in the world. Doc is a B-29 Superfortress and one of 1,644 manufactured in Wichita during World War II. Doc was found in 1987 sitting and rotting away in the Mojave Desert. This historic warbird, has recently been restored to flying status to serve as a flying museum. When not flying, it will be on display at the new B-29 Doc Hangar & Education Center, offering visitors a place to learn about the history of the airplane and to get a glimpse of Wichita’s aviation heritage.
