B-29 Superfortress
QuestMasters Museum
???, MD


B-29

B-29 Superfortress nose section on display at the Edward F. Beale Museum, located on the grounds of Beale AFB near Marysville, California. Beale AFB is famous as the home of the SR-71 and a major base for the U-2. The nose section was recovered from an aircraft that was used as a bombing target at China Lake.

The museum at Beale AFB closed after 9/11, and the aircraft have been sent to other museums. The Big Time Operator was send to the Museum of Flight in Seattle, to be used as a source of parts for the restoration of T Square 54. It then when to the New England Air Museum to be used as a source of parts for the restoration of Jack's Hack. Now little more than a shell, it was obtained in Novermber, 2012, but QuestMasters. They intend to restore it to the best shape possible without replacing any of the original materials.
