Paul W. Tibbets, Thomas W. Ferebee and Theodore J. Van Kirk signed Enola Gay Print
Print of the Enola Gay with boldly signed autographs of the Pilot and Commander-Colonel Paul W. Tibbets (died Nov. 1, 2007), the Navigator-Captain Theodore J. Van Kirk (died July 28, 2014), and the Bombardier-Major Thomas W. Ferebee (died March 16, 2000). The Enola Gay is the B-29 Superfortress bomber that dropped the first atomic bomb, code-named "Little Boy", to be used in war, by the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF) in the attack on Hiroshima, Japan on 6 August 1945, just before the end of World War II. The B-29 was named after Enola Gay Tibbets, the mother of the pilot, Paul Tibbets.[1] The Enola Gay gained additional national attention in 1995 when the cockpit and nose section of the aircraft was exhibited at the National Air and Space Museum (NASM) of the Smithsonian Institution in downtown Washington, D.C. The exhibit was changed due to a controversy over original historical script displayed with the aircraft. In 2003, the entire restored B-29 Enola Gay went on display at NASM's new Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center. Large quality card stock 18" x 24". Superb!! Truly Outstanding!!!
