Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Boeing B-29 Superfortress was produced in a large number of experimental and production models. The XB-29, Boeing Model 345, was the first accepted prototype or experimental model delivered to the Army Air Corps, incorporating a number of improvements on the design originally submitted, including more and larger guns and self-sealing fuel tanks. Two aircraft were ordered in 1940 August, and a third was ordered in December. A mock-up was completed in the spring of 1941, and it first flew on September 21, 1942.show more
