Much like the Enola Gay, the B-29 Bockscar also made a name in the Pacific theater during the World War II. Built at the Glenn L. Martin Aircraft Plant in Nebraska, the Bockscar was one of the 15 Silverplate B-29s that served the 509th as a Block 35 aircraft. In Tinian, this B-29 Superfortress model was employed in 13 training and practice missions while in Japan, it has successfully carried out three combat missions, including dropping pumpkin bombs. During the time when it dropped the Fat Man nuclear bomb, the Bockscar was piloted by Major Charles W. Sweeney, the 393rd Bombardment Squadron Commander. The original Bockscar is now displayed in the USAF's Ohio museum, next to the replica of the Fat Man atomic bomb.
