"Hawg Wild" was assigned to the 371st Bombardment Squadron stationed in Kadena Air Base, Okinawa in 1952. It flew 105 missions over North Korea before the Korean armistice agreement in 1953. It was sent to China Lake, CA for decommissioning before it was donated to the Imperial Air Museum and fully restored to its wartime color scheme. It is currently on permanent indoor display at the American Air Museum in Duxford England.

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.
