Rare Airborne Giant: Catch One of the Last Flying B-29s at Charleston Air Show


The 2024 Joint Base Charleston Air Show, scheduled for April 20-21, will feature a rare aviation marvel: the B-29 Doc, one of only two B-29 Superfortress aircraft still capable of flight.

Built by Boeing during World War II, Doc is a testament to the era’s aviation ingenuity, having served the United States Army Air Corps since its delivery in March 1945.

After decades of dormancy and a rigorous restoration from 2000 to 2016 involving over 350,000 hours of work by enthusiasts and volunteers, Doc now serves as a flying tribute to America’s defenders of freedom, attending air shows nationwide.
