The Hiroshima atom bomb photograph signs printed card in blue ink
Printed card signed in ink: "George Caron" in blue ink. 3½x2 card. George R. "Bob" Caron (1919-1995) was the tail gunner on the Enola Gay on its historic mission to drop an atomic bomb on Hiroshima, Japan on August 6, 1945.Seated in the rear of the B-29, he was the first to see the mushroom cloud. Caron had been given a camera at the last moment and snapped a roll of photographs as the mushroom cloud ascended. His photographs of the explosion were printed on millions of leaflets that were dropped over Japan the next day. Caron died in 1995. The Confederate Air Force, which changed its name to the Commemorative Air Force in 2002 to avoid confusion about its mission, buys and restores historic combat aircraft to flying condition. At last tally it owned over 140 aircraft, at least 100 of which are in flying condition. Toned. Corners rounded. Pencil notes on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
