Years ago, I made a profile of the B-29 “Enola Gay”. She was a “Silverplate” B-29, modified for the atomic bombing mission. I hadn’t done any normal B-29s yet, but now the template has been improved and converted to standard B-29 configuration. Click on the image above to see the full-size template.
“Enola Gay” was the aircraft used to drop the atomic bomb on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945. It was a B-29-45-MO, modified as “Silverplate” aircraft and belonged to the 393rd Bombardment Squadron, 509th Composite Group. It was flown by Col. Paul Tibbets.
