DECLASSIFIED PHOTOS – Atomic bombs in WWII, Enola Gay

Courtesy of Lee Williams:

Forest Arden was the chief flight mechanic of a B-29 stationed at Tinian Island. His aircraft was parked nearby to the Enola Gay and he watched the loading procedure of the first Atomic Bomb.

He said that security was strictly enforced and no one was
allowed to approach to within 100 yards! Few had any inkling
of what�was about to occur. Everyone was astounded at the sudden
end of World War II.

This is an unbelievable set of photos – the REAL thing – pix from
Tinian Island as the B-29 “Enola Gay” was being loaded. Notice
the “Top Secret” stamp on some of the photos. In the last few
Pix notice the CRUDE sheet metal work on the casing and fins
of “Little Boy” – the bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima.
