Vintage bomber has a new mission: Honor those who built and flew in them

The thousands of B-29s that were built during World War II had a single mission: to drop bombs on enemies of the United States. So what’s the mission of a B-29 that’s been restored decades later? According to those who operate and maintain the B-29 “Doc," its current mission is to honor the men and women who built and served on B-29s during wartime. On Tuesday, at the EAA AirVenture Show in Oshkosh, Wisconsin, “Doc” took to the skies with some precious cargo to carry out its new mission.
