"It's Hawg Wild" B-29A at Tucson International Airport

Boeing's B-29 Superfortress was the most sophisticated, propeller-driven, bomber to fly during World War II, and the first bomber to house its crew in pressurized compartments. On August 6, 1945, Colonel Paul W. Tibbets, Jr., in command of the Superfortress "Enola Gay," dropped an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan.

This particular Boeing B-29A (G-BHDK / 44-61748 (cn 11225)) was rescued from the China Lake target range, where it survived three separate air-to-ground missile sorties with no damage. After recovering it from the desert and being made airworthy for a short flight to Tuscon, it underwent more comprehensive restoration. Upon completion, it was acquired by the Imperial War Museum in Duxford, England, where it was fully restored and is now on display as "It's Hawg Wild."
