ENOLA GAY CREW: PAUL TIBBETS
B/w photo of the Enola Gay, signed "Paul Tibbets, Pilot B29 Enola Gay" in 2004 by Tibbets. Tibbets also signed this photo with the date of the first use of the atomic bomb in warfare: "6 Aug. 1945".
Annotated photograph signed "Paul Tibbets, Pilot B29 Enola Gay/6 Aug. 1945/5-30-04" in blue ink. B/w, 9¾x8 overall, image 9¼x7¼ (one surface). The Enola Gay, a modified B-29, dropped the world's first atomic bomb used in war. Colonel PAUL W. TIBBETS, JR. was the pilot, Major THOMAS W. FEREBEE was the bombardier, Captain THEODORE J. VAN KIRK was the navigator, Lieutenant JACOB BESER was radar counter measures (RCM) observer, Staff Sergeant GEORGE R. CARON was the tail gunner and Pfc. RICHARD H. 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. Lightly creased, otherwise in fine condition.
