The Boeing B-29 Superfortress has carved its name in history as the bomber aircraft that dropped the world's first atomic weapons on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945. Flown mainly by the USAAF towards the end of WWII and later during the Korean War, the four-engine B-29 was at the cutting edge of aeronautical design for its time, with pressurized crew accommodation, electronic fire-control system and remotely operated gun turrets.

The Boeing B-29 Superfortress Owners' Workshop Manual includes a section dedicated to The Museum of Flight's B-29, T-Square 54; a combat survivor that flew 37 combat missions with the 875th Bomb Squadron, 498th Bomb Group. Following the war the B-29 was converted to an aerial refueling tanker before eventually ending up at The Museum of Flight in 1995.
