We got off to a late start due to low cloud cover in Fayetteville Tuesday afternoon and Wednesday morning but it all worked out alright as B-29 Doc touched down at Texarkana Regional Airport Wednesday a little after 2 PM.

After a bit of cleanup and a crew meeting, they allowed the press to come up and have a look, and that is exactly what I did.

I have been lucky enough in my radio career to fly in a B-17 twice, both times on the recently lost Texas Raiders, a B-24, a Stearman biplane, and an AT-6 Texan 3 times. This was my first chance at an experience up close with B-29 Doc and I loved it. I bet you will too. Don't forget, I'm "Just Plane Nuts," thanks for reading!
