The cockpit of the Enola Gay - the first aircraft to drop an atomic bomb. The bomb, code-named "Little Boy", was targeted at the city of Hiroshima, Japan. Col. Paul Tibbets occupied this seat as airplane commander on 6 August, 1945. B-29 manuals emphasized that a Superfortress commander was "no longer just a pilot" and was "overseeing a combat force all your own."
“Enola Gay” was the name given to the B-29 Super-fortress bomber which dropped the nuclear bomb on the city of Hiroshima in Japan and effectively began the process of ending the long and bloody conflict in the Pacific which claimed so many young soldiers’ lives.
