"Enola Gay" Crew Signatures

MS6367

The Enola Gay is a Boeing B-29 Superfortress bomber, named for Enola Gay Tibbets, the mother of the pilot, Colonel Paul Tibbets, who selected the aircraft while it was still on the assembly line. On August 6, 1945, it became the first aircraft to drop an atomic bomb. The bomb, code-named "Little Boy", was targeted at the city of Hiroshima, Japan, and caused unprecedented destruction.
Considered the turning point in the Pacific Theater of WWII, the bombing of Hiroshima ultimately lead to the surrender of the Empire of Japan.  This very rare collection of original signatures by the Crew of the historic Enola Gay (some also added inscriptions);
