Interesting observance of a significant day. We, who were not involved with the conflict can endlessly debate the propriety of the event, can agree to disagree about the question of necessity, and the ramifications that continue to this day. We cannot overlook the significance of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. Well, we can but at our peril.

The squawk had been down voted which is the right of participants. I exercise my right to not understand why.

As a side note to this squawk, I had the pleasure of meeting Paul Tibbets Jr., one of the foundrs of EJA (now Net-Jets) in 1977 in Denver when he called on our company. I knew who he was and he knew I knew who he was but we never mentioned August 6, 1945.

What a nice man and gentleman. I bought him lunch at Trader Vic's in the old Cosmo' Hotel and I still have the American Express receipt from that lunch.

Something aboard # 82 weighed about 2500# more than the load on the other aircraft.

I guess you are looking at the 400 gal difference? 'Little Boy' apparently weighed in at 9,700 lbs or so. Little Boy was about half the weight capacity of the B-29. I wonder what the other 400 gals were for on the other planes.

Very neat part of history. Thanks for finding/sharing.

Did anyone else notice the note at the bottom? "Lt McKnight's crew need not attend briefings." I find that rather curious.

The video makes the bomb seem so simple with ultimate power. The enriched U235 is the most difficult item to create.
