ATOMIC BOMB: BOCK'S CAR (FRED BOCK). Photograph signed: "Fred Bock/28 May '83". B/w, 10x8. U.S. Air Force typed caption affixed to verso: "Tinian Island, Marianas Islands - During the briefing in preparation for the first atomic bombing of Hiroshima, Japan, on 6 August 1945, a target study class was conducted for members of the 509th Composite Group." Captain Fred Bock was the pilot of the B-29 bearing his name. Major Charles Sweeney was the pilot of the Great Artiste, which had accompanied the Enola Gay on the Hiroshima mission. When Sweeney was given the assignment to drop the second atomic bomb, he decided to swap planes with Captain Bock to avoid the time-consuming hassle of removing the scientific measuring equipment from the Great Artiste. Photo fluid stain at edges. Fine condition.
