Thanks Scott, that was wonderful.

I had the honor of meeting and talking with two CNY men who worked on the Enola Gay.

One was a Bendix Stromberg fuel systems specialist sent out to the Pacific to teach Navy pilots how to extend their fuel range without burning up engines. He eventually was transferred to Tinian Island to help straighten out the fuel injection problems with the R-3350 radials so that the Enola Gay could make it to Japan and back.

The other was an Army Air Corps sheet metal smith who had a flying sheet metal repair shop in a C-47 that fly the "hump" into China to repair shot up B-29's so they could make it back over the hump to India and be further repaired to then make it back into the fight. He was also sent to Tinian Island to help modify the bomb bay doors to be able to fit the a-bomb in.

Sadly both are gone now. May they rest in peace.

Glad you guy's enjoyed it. Old planes have a special place in my soul for sure.

Sounds like they were two guy's who probably forgot more than I'll ever know Paul :lol:

And I'd give my right arm to have that set of sheet metal tools in the C-47 :shock:
