ENOLA GAY CREW: THOMAS W. FEREBEE
The bombardier is shown in "parade rest" stance on the runway at Tinian, being interviewed after the historic mission.
Photograph signed: "Thomas W. Ferebee/Col. USAF Ret./Bombardier Enola Gay/Aug. 6, 1945". B/w, 8x10. On the morning of Aug. 6, 1945, Colonel Paul Tibbets piloted the Enola Gay, a specially modified Boeing B-29 Superfortress named after his mother, on its mission to drop the world's first atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan. Thomas W. Ferebee (1918-2000) was the bombardier on board the Enola Gay and was responsible for dropping the first atomic bomb, "Little Boy", on Hiroshima, Japan. Ferebee initially trained for a position on the Boston Red Sox, but joined the Army when he didn't make the team. A knee injury put him into flight school instead of Army training. He remained in the Air Force until the 1970s, serving in Korea and retiring as a colonel. He worked as a real estate agent after retirement. The bomb killed 66,000 and injured 69,000 people, not including long-term victims of radiation exposure. However, the atomic bombs dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki (Aug. 9) hastened the surrender of Japan, ending World War II. Fine condition.
