MASON CITY, Iowa - A historic bomber that was used in the Pacific theater of World War II is spending the night at the Mason City Municipal Airport.
At around 11 on Wednesday morning, the massive, four-engined bomber made a picture-perfect landing at the airport. Aviation buffs stood by the fence to snap a few pictures of the gleaming, majestic bomber.
The aircraft is owned and maintained by an organization called Doc's Friends. Josh Wells, who is the executive director of the organization, says keeping the B-29 airworthy is a perfect way to pay tribute to the heroes of World War II.
