 Off Airport - Washington [National Air and Space Museum], DC, USA 5-June-2016 
 USA - Air Force Boeing B-29 Superfortress Arjun Sarup 
 44-86292 Enola Gay of the 509th Composite Group on display at Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center. On Aug. 5, 1945 Col. Paul W. Tibbets ordered the name of his mother painted on at Tinian. On Aug. 6 at 8:15 a.m. she dropped the first atomic weapon on Hiroshima and later flew on Op. Crossroads. Due to deterioration from storage outdoors, restoration by NASM lasted almost two decades. As part of the Silverplate conversion to save weight, the nose section is devoid of the upper gun turret. (more of 44-86292) ID: 1601506 / 63 views
