ENOLA GAY CREW: PAUL TIBBETS, TOM FEREBEE and THEODORE VAN KIRK. Photograph signed: "Tom Ferebee/Bombardier/11-5-90", "Paul W. Tibbets/Pilot", and "Theodore J Van Kirk/Navigator 11-23-90". B/w, 10x8. On the morning of August 6, 1945, the Enola Gay lifted off from Tinian Island; its special payload: "Little Boy," a9,000 pound uranium-235 core-fissionable atomic bomb. At 8:16 a.m., the bomb (which descended from the plane by parachute) exploded 1,890 feet over Hiroshima, Japan's seventh largest city. Over 78,000 people were killed by the searing heat and gamma rays, and the city, which had been home to a garrison of 150,000 Japanese troops, was virtually destroyed. This action, and the dropping of another atomic bomb on the city of Nagasaki three days later, was credited with hastening the end of World War II. Slightly grainy image. Otherwise, fine condition.
