Doc's Friends' operations manager TJ Norman was in the pilot's seat. In the copilot's seat was Tony Mazzolini, the man who found Doc in the Mojave Desert in 1987 and brought the bomber to Wichita in 2000. The video below shows Mazzolini's reaction as the first Wright R-3350 radial engine spins to life. Behind Norman and Mazzolini, in the flight engineer's seat, was Rick Garvis from the Commemorative Air Force, who is the crew chief for the only currently flying B-29 — Fifi. "The Fifi crew has been a tremendous help," said Jim Murphy, program manager for Doc, as he narrated the first engine start.
