The Steven F. Udvar-Hazy Center, Chantilly, VA.

The infamous B-29 bomber, Enola Gay is on view here. Sixty-two years ago today, on August 6, 1945, this Martin-built B-29-MO dropped the first ever atomic weapon used in combat on Hiroshima, Japan.

Over 140,000 people, mostly civilians, were killed.
