Awesome cinematography of this shiny newly restored B-29 with only a few hours flight time under its belt. The imagery is great, the sound is kinda rough.

Must be an incredible view up front.
I can imagine the horror of looking up in the sky and seeing 500 of those beautiful birds flying overhead.
The roar and smell of A/Gas must have been incredible.
smells like victory.
Where are all the gun turrets?
And these days nukes are real little, we could load enough to hit Raqqa, Mecca, Medina, Tehran, Kabul, Dubai and Islamabad all in one flight!
I know, I knowwwww the SAM and jet fighter threat is kinda bad. but what can I say,,, I’m a romantic!
I believe the gun turrets were removed in the 1950’s when the aircraft served as a radar trainer, along with six other B-29s. The seven aircraft were known as the Seven Dwarfs, hence the nose art name of “Doc.”
