B-29A #44-61535 was assigned to the 28th Bombardment Squadron and deployed to Kadena Air Force Base in Japan during the Korean War. The aircraft wore the nose-art titled "Raz'n Hell" and flew over 50 combat missions. After the war, the airframe was retired to the NAWS China Lake for use as a test target. In 1980, it was recovered and moved to its present home at the Air Force Museum based at Castle Air Force Base in Atwater, California.

Boeing B-29A Superfortress

Designed to meet an American need for a very heavy, long range bomber, the B-29 Superfortress was first flown on September 21st, 1942. The USAAF's intent in building the B-29 was to have an aircraft that was capable of winning the war through sheer destructive power-by destroying the enemy homeland. This mid-wing bomber had four 3,500 horsepower Pratt & Whitney engines. It required a crew of 10 specialists and gunners and had a sophisticated weapons system that included guns mounted in electrically powered turrets in the dorsal, ventral and tail positions. The guns were operated by internal periscope systems.
