NELSON was the radio operator on the historic flight that lifted off from Tinian Island at 2:45 A.M. on August 6, 1945. At 17 seconds past 8:15 a.m., "Little Boy", a 9,000-pound uranium-235 core-fissionable atomic bomb was released over Hiroshima, Japan. Forty-three seconds later, after the bomb detonated at 1,890 feet, the city was decimated; 71,000 were killed or assumed dead, 68,000 were injured and 60,000 buildings were destroyed. The bombing changed the course of warfare forever. As of early 2011, "Dutch" Van Kirk is the only survivor among the 12 crew members on the historic flight of the Enola Gay. In overall fine condition with scattered creasing and the bottom of the second photo trimmed.
