Product Description

The Boeing B-29 "Superfortress" long range strategic bomber was designed in 1940 as an eventual replacement for the B-17 and B-24. The first one built made its maiden flight on September 21, 1942. In December 1943, it was decided not to use the B-29 in the European Theater, thereby permitting the airplane to be sent to the Pacific area where its great range made it particularly suited for the long over-water flight required to attack the Japanese homeland from bases in China. At the end of 1944, B-29s began operating against Japan from the islands of Saipan, Guam and Tinian. In June 1950, the B-29 was used in action over Korea. For the next several years it was effectively used for attacking targets in North Korea. When production ended in May 1946, 3970 B-29's had been built.

On August 6, 1945 the crew of the B-29 Enola Gay released an atomic bomb over Hiroshima.
