The Sedgwick County Commission voted Wednesday to contribute $200,000 to Doc’s Friends, which is working to build a home for the historic B-29 bomber.
The commission voted 4-1 to assist the ongoing project to build Doc a permanent hangar at Eisenhower National Airport. The $6.5 million project, which broke ground last fall, also will include an education center.
“Doc is a national treasure,” said commissioner David Dennis, an Air Force veteran. “Doc is really a critical part of our nation’s history.”
