TEXARKANA, Ark. -- A World War II B-29 Superfortress initially slated to visit Texarkana Regional Airport later this month has now been postponed until May.
The restored bomber Doc will be on display from May 17-21. Ground and cockpit tours will be open to the public, according to a news release.
Tickets are $10 per person or $20 per family for tours from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 17-19 and from noon to 4 p.m. May 20-21.
Prior to its planned visit to Texarkana, the 1945 B-29 visited Denver, Cleveland and other cities.
The B-29's visit will be the first by a WWII plane since the late 1990s and early 2000s, when a B-17 Flying Fortress visited the airport at least twice.
Each year, Doc travels the U.S. between April and October to give aviation enthusiasts a chance to view the warplane up close.
Doc initially was scheduled to visit Texarkana March 20-26.
