As soon as I heard that the second flyable B-29 Superfortress, “Doc” was going to be at this year’s Mid-Atlantic Air Museum’s WWII Weekend I made travel arrangements to be there. I followed the restoration progress over the last few years and wanted to see it in person. Even better, I had the opportunity to see it fly.
I also had the privilege of doing a photo shoot with it, but that’s a story for another day.
It’s that time of year again! This weekend is Mid Atlantic Air Museum’s WWII Weekend. After only spending one day there last year, I’m looking forward to a full weekend this year.
Sadly, the P-47 Thunderbolt, Jacky’s Revenge, pictured above will not be in attendance this year. Last Friday, it suffered what is believed to be engine failure and was landed in the Hudson River. It’s pilot, Bill Gordon, drowned when the plane sank before he was able to get out of the harness. My condolences go out to the Gordon Family and to the folks at the American Airpower Museum.
