B-29 bomber to move to aviation museum

December 19, 2006


A historic bomber that has been undergoing restoration for seven years will be moved to the Kansas Aviation Museum next month.

The Boeing B-29 Superfortress, nicknamed "Doc," was part of a nine-plane squadron bearing the names of characters from the Walt Disney movie "Snow White."

Volunteers, many of whom helped build more than 1,644 of the Boeing B-29 Superfortresses during World War II, have been working since 2000 to renovate the plane.

Doc will be moved from the Boeing Integrated Defense Systems plant to the museum near the end of January.
