World War II Bomber Gets A Raise

The Museum of Aviation’s B-29 bomber may never again soar to the heights of its World War II glory days, but it has managed to get off the ground.

The B-29B - a fixture at the Museum of Aviation since 1983 - was raised 8 feet above the floor of the WW II Hangar March 20 by a team from the 402nd Expeditionary Depot Maintenance Group with the assistance of museum exhibit specialists and volunteers.

The crew used aircraft jacks to lift the bomber and position it onto large display stands in an effort to add walking space beneath the plane for visitors while making room for new aircraft in the building.

"Preserving these aircraft for future generations is the name of the game," said Bill Paul, museum collections manager.
