The B-29 Superfortress was a four-engine heavy bomber developed by Boeing and operated by the USAAF (U.S Air Force after 1947) toward the end of World War II and during the 1950-1953 Korean War. On the cutting edge of technology at the time, the Superfortress had a pressurized crew compartment, computerized defensive weapons systems and advanced radar for bombing and navigation. The B-29 prototype was first flown on September 21, 1942, with the production model entering service in mid-1944. Although considered for operations in other theaters during World War II, the B-29 was used exclusively in the Pacific against Japan. The most well-known B-29s were the Silverplate series, which were modified to drop atomic bombs.

The B-50 Superfortress, a variant of the B-29 with more powerful engines, stronger structure, a taller tail fin and other improvements, entered operational service in 1948 and was phased out in the early 1960s, with the final example retired in 1965.
