If you speak English and still have the Rights granted By the Constitution of the United States of America , you owe a debt of gratitude to all involved in the production and operation of this magnificent aircraft.
While Harry Truman was still Commander in Chief, I served with those that crewed the B-29 and the B24's over Europe. To know them is to realize they were "the greatest generation". God bless then all.

B-29s over Europe?

That's right. Only 3 B-29's ever flew to England during WW 2 on their long way to India & on to China with the hope that the Luftwaffe would spot them....and they sure did. Recon Flight flew over the field after they landed within the hour.

Germany was bracing for the B-29 & it never showed up over their skies.

je suis étonné de constater qu on parle du passage du B29 en europe WW2----(I was 15) Mais je pense qu il a été utilisé en Asie au départ de Guam et les Philipines pour crosser le Japon (si je me souviens par les radios et journaux de cette époque.nous étions friands d aviation et de forteresses volantes.
