The Enola Gay photo shows the plane with the name given to 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. As documented in a war plane photo, 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 B-29 was named after Enola Gay Tibbets, who was the mother of the pilot, Paul Tibbets.
The Enola Gay military plane photo is a black-and-white photograph that is hand-signed by Van Kirk, matted and framed in wood under glass. Certificate of authenticity included.
