Chosen for preservation, the Enola Gay was stored at Davis-Monthan AFB, AZ in 1946. Transferred to the Smithsonian Institution, the aircraft moved to Orchard Place Air Field, IL (1949), Pyote Air Force Base, TX (1952), and Edwards AFB (1953) for storage outside as the Smithsonian had no place to store such a large aircraft. In 1960, it was disassembled and moved to the Smithsonian storage facility in Suitland, MD where it's pictured in cramped quarters. Restoration beginning in 1984 at the Garber facility, the historic bomber was unveiled at the Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center in 2003.

Took part in the closing months of World War II with the 62nd Bomb Squadron at Guam and named Timely Reminder. Reportedly scrapped at Robins AFB in 1954, but clearly that is not the case. [By coincidence this and the RAF Comet behind both have serials ending in 716.]

According to published data this aircraft was scrapped at Tinker AFB in December 1954. Clearly this is not the case as it is here as large as life with a tail emblem from the 420 Air Refueling Squadron stationed at RAF Sculthorpe in the mid-1950s.

The wheels seem out of proportion. It could be they have low pressure tires for soft field operations, as here taxiing on the grass. To MASDC and declared excess in July 1964.

The original Dutch caption says that this was the second 'Super Flying Fortress' to land in Europe, and correctly states that the first one visited France. It is actually the same aircraft, however - see other photo - and 44-61679 also visited Copenhagen in September 1945.

'The first B-29 Superfortress to land on the European Continent is shown at Orly airfield, outside Paris, where it put down September 4, 1945. The non-stop flight of 2,300 nautical miles from Goose Bay, Labrador, was made in nine hours and twenty-one-minutes, breaking the trans-Atlantic record set by a Constellation. The B-29 will be put on exhibition in Paris as part of the American war material responsible for the eclipse of the Japanese.' However, the same airframe was photographed at Copenhagen - Kastrup during a similar exhibition that reportedly took place from 8-30 September.
