This is most interesting---but as I looked at the photos I realized these were the two bombs that ended the war and probably saved some million lives that would not have been saved without this method of stopping the Japanese back in August of 1945. It was also an event that happened in most of our lifetimes, too---saving the world and stopping the most destructive war ever. Interesting to see the assembly and the loading of the two bombs used to do so, too.
DECLASSIFIED PHOTOS - "B-29 "Enola Gay"
Forest Arden was the chief flight mechanic of a B-29 stationed at Tinian Island. His aircraft was parked nearby to the Enola Gay and he watched the loading procedure of the first Atomic Bomb. He said that security was strictly enforced and no one was allowed to approach to within 100 yards. Few had any inkling of what was about to occur. Everyone was astounded at the sudden end of World War II.
This is an unbelievable set of photos - the REAL thing - pix from Tinian Island as the B-29 "Enola Gay" was being loaded.
Notice the "Top Secret" stamp on some of the photos. In the last few pix notice the CRUDE sheet metal work on the casing and fins of "Little Boy" - the bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima. http://www.alternatewars.com/Bomb_Loading/Bomb_Guide.htm
