Keeping 'Doc' airborne doesn't come cheap

Operating a 72-year-old World War II bomber doesn’t come easy. Or cheap. Doc’s Friends communication director Josh Wells talks about how much it costs to keep the restored Superfortress “Doc” in the air and how the organization finds creative ways to raise money. In addition, the organization is trying to raise money for a permanent hanger to house the plane at Wichita’s Dwight D. Eisenhower National Airport. (Video by Travis Heying/The Wichita Eagle)
