I wonder if Doc was built at the Renton plant when I was growing up in West Seattle? We are about the same age.
Damn, that is some serious Vertical Stabilization.

@James If God intended jets, then the Wright Bro's would have made one of those first :grin:

Nice shot!
My father flew those out of Guam as a typhoon chaser in the early 50s.

@Russ Brown - B-29-70-BW Superfortress Ser.No.44-69972 was built at Boeing's Wichita plant (BW).
It's always beautiful to see these, the B29 got off to a rough start but by the end of the day it'd had a great run

Great Photo Adam.....

Looking forward to seeing Doc operate out of Appleton, WI for 2 days end of July.
