Equipped with pressurized cabins for high-altitude effectiveness, with an electronic fire-control system, and remote-controlled machine gun turrets, the B-29 Superfortress was the most advanced aircraft of WWII. Two of those planes, the Superfortresses Enola Gay and Bockscar, dropped the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. Yet over all, the B-29 received less notoriety than its storied elder siblings, the B-17 and B-24, perhaps because its service areas - the China, Burma, and India Theater and the Western Pacific - were less publicized than was the war in Europe. Designed by Boeing, nearly 4,000 B-29s had been turned out by the time production ended in 1946. Yet today, only a few meticulously restored and preserved examples of the historic aircraft survive. A unique look at the plane that ushered in the nuclear age. Illustrated with over 210 photographs; 80 pages.

Book Description Squadron/Signal Books , 2008. Condition: New. 80 pages; 200 photos, color profiles and detailed line drawings. From the beginning of production in 1943 until the end of production in 1946, 4 different factories built nearly 4,000 B-29s. The airplane did not receive the notoriety of other heavy bombers of WWII, such as the B-17 and B-24, partially because it was deployed primarily in China, Burma, and India and the Mariana Islands in the Pacific.
