Bockscar

Posted: October 14, 2012 in HDR, Nikon D40, Ohio

The aircraft pictured above is the B-29 Superfortress nicknamed Bockscar. It was one of the largest aircraft to be used in World War II, had a pressurized cabin, and even remote controlled machine-gun turrets. But what this particular aircraft is most-widely known for is the atomic bombing missions over Hiroshima (“Little Boy” dropped by the Enola Gay) & Nagasaki (“Fat Man” dropped by Bockscar). The Bockscar B-29 Superfortress, pictured above, is now on display at the National Museum of the Air Force, in Dayton, Ohio.
