B-29A Superfortress
Seattle Museum Of Flight
Seattle, WA


B-29

B-29A T Square 54 on display in the parking lot of the Museum Of Flight in Seattle, Washington. This B-29 flew 36 missions against Japan in WWII. It was converted to a tanker and flew many more missions over Korea. This combat vet was relegated to the bombing range at China Lake. It was rediscovered in the 1970's, and finally rescued from the desert in 1986. She was put back together by the folks at Lowry AFB in Denver, and went on display at the Heritage of the Rockies Museum. When Lowry closed, the aircraft was transfered to the Museum of Flight. It sat in the parking lot of the museum for several years while volunteers worked to further restore the aircraft. But the heavy winters in Denver and ocean air in Seattle have already taken a toll on the aircraft, so it was pulled off display to rework some of the major past restoration work. The museum will hopefully find an indoor location for this historic aircraft. It would be criminal to let it sit outside any longer.
