 The Superfortress known as "Doc" Serial Number 44-69972 has had extensive restoration done on it by volunteers in Wichita, Kansas where it was originally built.

"Doc" was one of a squadron of eight planes named as one of the dwarfs from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs story.

After the Korean War, it was flown to China Lake, California, for use as a bombing target. It became part of the United States Aviation Museum, Inyokern, CA, from 1998 - 2000.

It was later disassembled and moved by truck in March 2007 to the Kansas Aviation Museum for restoration.

In 2013 it was announced that a new non-profit group, Doc’s Friends, had taken ownership of the airplane and would support the effort to refurbish the vintage airplane. The airplane was moved from a storage hangar to active hangar space donated by Boeing where volunteers resumed restoration work.

Doc successfully returned to the air at McConnell AFB in Wichita on July 17, 2016
