BOCK'S CAR CREW: CHARLES D. ALBURY
The Great Artiste co-pilot signs a 3½x2 card
Printed card signed in Ink: "C D Albury", 3½x2 card. Imprinted: "Captain Charles Donald Albury/Hiroshima, Nagasaki/August, 1945". Capt. Albury was co-pilot of The Great Artiste, one of the seven planes taking part in the August 6, 1945 Hiroshima mission. The Great Artiste also took part in the Nagasaki mission, the only B-29 to participate in both of the primary strike forces. Its role on both missions was to drop scientific instruments by parachute to measure bomb yield. On August 9, 1945, Albury led a three-plane mission to drop the second atomic bomb. His crew swapped planes with pilot Fred Bock (Bocks Car) and his crew to avoid the hassle of transferring the scientific equipment from The Great Artiste to another plane to make room for the bomb. Albury was co-pilot of Bocks Car. Fine condition.
