An insight into the design, operation, maintenance and restoration of the USA's giant long-range heavy bomber.
The Boeing B-29 Superfortress has carved its name in history as the bomber aircraft that dropped the world's first ever atomic-bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945.
Flown mainly by the USAAF towards the end of WW2 and later during the Korean War, the four-engine B-29 was at the cutting edge of aeronautical design for its time, with pressurised crew accommodation, electronic fire-control system and remotely operated gun turrets. The centrepiece of this manual is the B-29 T Square 54 currently being exquisitely restored to a non flying condition in Seattle, WA.
This book is chock full of development history, specifications, and details. A must have reference for B-29s.
