Sometimes You Just Need a Reason to Post About a Big Plane

Truthfully I don’t need a reason, I’m always happy to put up a picture of a big bomber. Most of these planes were work horses then and after WWII. Well today actually marks an interesting day in aviation history, in 1944 B-29 bombers of the Twentieth Air Force took off from Air Bases in China to bomb mainland Japan. It was the second proper raid against Japan in the history of the Pacific and it was the 1st raid after the famous Doolittle raid in 1942. It was the start of a bloody bombing campaign that left many dead. Only one of those magnificent silver planes is left flying today but hopefully Doc, the second B-29, will be up flying at Airshows soon.
