Product Overview

The aircraft model shown above is Factory Direct Models elite collector series scale model replica of the Boeing B-29 Superfortress aircraft named the “Enola Gay” that was flown by the United States Army Air Forces during the later part of World War II. This B-29 Superfortress was named for Enola Gay Tibbets, the mother of the pilot Colonel Paul Tibbets. This airframe was selected by Colonel Tibbets while it was still on the assembly line at the Bellevue, Nebraska plant located at what is now known as Offutt Air Force Base and was one of fifteen “Silverplate” modified B-29’s that was necessary to deliver atomic weapons. The Enola Gay became famous on 6 August, 1945 when it dropped the first atomic bomb, code-named “Little Boy” on Hiroshima, Japan causing unprecedented destruction. Enola Gay also participated in the second atomic attack as the weather reconnaissance aircraft for the primary target of Kokura, but clouds and drifting smoke from a nearby previous conventional bombing raid resulted in the city of Nagasaki, Japan, the secondary target, to be bombed instead. The Enola Gay is currently on display at the National Air and Space Museum’s Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in Washington D. C.
