I got some info today on Doc visiting the Arkansas Air & Military Museum in Fayetteville:
B-29 Doc announced today the addition of the Arkansas Air & Military Museum at Drake Field in Fayetteville to the historic warbird’s 2021 tour schedule.

Doc, one of only two B-29 Superfortresses still flying, will arrive at the Arkansas Air & Military Museum Thursday, April 15, and will be on static display Friday, April 16, through Sunday, April 18. B-29 Doc Flight Experience rides will be available Saturday and Sunday, April 17 and 18.

“We are thrilled to welcome B-29 Doc back to northwest Arkansas for a second time,” said Laci Shuffield, Arkansas Air & Military Museum executive director. “Having a B-29 on the ramp at Drake Field, in addition to the availability of our unique museum artifacts, will make for a one-of-a-kind springtime experience for aviation and warbird fans throughout the Fayetteville area.”

The museum will be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission to the event, which includes access to the museum, as well as the aircraft ramp and cockpit tours, is $30 for a family, $15 for adults and $10 for children 12 and under. All proceeds will benefit B-29 Doc as well as the Arkansas Air & Military Museum.

“Visiting the Arkansas Air & Military Museum and Drake Field with B-29 Doc is a unique experience and tour stop for us,” said Josh Wells, B-29 Doc general manager and executive director. “The museum’s hangar at Drake Field represents a remaining piece of World War II history that was home to a pilot training depot for the U.S. Army Air Forces. Bringing the B-29 to Drake Field helps to further tell the story of our nation’s heroes from the Greatest Generation, and those who are serving our nation to protect freedom today.”

Tickets for B-29 Doc Flight Experience rides are on sale now at www.b29doc.com. Rides are scheduled for 9 a.m. and 11 a.m. on April 17 and 18. Ground and flight deck tours for B-29 Doc will be available following the ride flight operations, at approximately noon on both days.

More information about any COVID-19 protocols for visitors to the event will be released as that information becomes available.
