OK, i won't ask! Incidentally, the big silver Colonial monstrosity in the picture is none other than the Boeing B-29 Superfortress " Enola Gay.."

Ah, the B-29 - my all-time favourite aeroplane, and I don't care who knows it. ;)

Many years ago I met Paul Tibbets, the pilot of the Enola Gay. He kindly signed my B-29 book. :) You're the only ones outside my immediate family to see this. Another CBFS first. :lol:
