The Vets Turn Out For B-29 “Doc” & “FiFi”

Published in Midwest Flyer – October/November 2017 Issue

World War II B-29 pilot and author, Richard Thomsen of Manitowoc, Wisconsin, enjoyed the afternoon airshow at EAA AirVenture Oshkosh featuring the B-29s “Doc” and “FiFi.” Thomsen wrote the book “Learning to fly the B-29 Superfortress,” and “Is God On Our Side.” Thomsen is a graduate of the University of Illinois with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. During his career, he was an officer and on the board of directors of several large firms, and started two successful small businesses – the last sold aircraft kits in Wisconsin and Illinois. Thomsen built two kit aircraft – “One for show, and one for go!”
