B-29 Superfortress
Hill Aerospace Museum
Ogden, UT


B-29

B-29 on display at the Hill Aerospace Museum in Ogden, Utah. The museum has a separate entrance from Hill Air Force Base, so it is open to the public without a need to get a pass. The museum has a nice new display hangar, but it it is only big enough to hold about half of the aircraft collection. Hopefully, a second hangar will be built to house the Superfort indoors. The Hag was restored tip to tail for static display in the late 1990's. She looks like she is in factory new condition, at least on the outside. In fact, she looks like she could be fired up to go fly a mission on short notice. One could only hope.

This B-29 was built by the Martin Company rather than Boeing. By coincidence, it was delivered to the US Army Air Force on August 6, 1945, the same day the Enola Gay dropped an atomic bomb on Japan. The aircraft was assigned to a Chemical and Ordnance Test Group in the Utah dessert. After 30 years in the dessert, it was recovered by the Hill Aerospace Museum, and put on display in 1986.
