A B-29 in a museum.

The B-29 Superfortress was a four-engine heavy bomber propeller driven aircraft built by Boeing and operated by the United States Air Force during World War II and the Korean War. The name was taken from the early and well-known B-17 Flying Fortress. Two B-29s were responsible for the nuclear bombings of Nagasaki and Hiroshima.
