— 1944 · B-29 C.B.I.-Guam-Saipan-Tinian · 1945 —

The men and women of the 6th Bomb Group Association thank the people of Grand Island for their warm hospitality when we trained here in 1944/1945 before leaving for the Pacific Theatre of War to fly 1,750 World War II B-29 combat missions over Japan.

We of the 20th Air Force were the first to use air power to end a major war without an invasion of the enemy's homeland.

This 16' 7" propellor [sic] is just one of the four which pulled each giant B-29 into the sky!
