The Enola Gay photo shows the B-29 Superfortress bomber that dropped the first atomic bomb, code-named "Little Boy", to be used in war, by the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) in the attack on Hiroshima, Japan on 6 August 1945, just before the end of World War II. Due to the nuclear device's role in the atomic bombings of Japan, the bomb's name has become synonymous with the bombings themselves. The Anola Gay war plane photo shows the B-29 that was named after Enola Gay Tibbets, who was the mother of the pilot, Paul Tibbets. Black-and-white photograph is hand-signed by Van Kirk and Jeppson, along with B29 skin relic, matted and framed in wood under glass. Certificate of authenticity included.
