B29 Superfortress Then and Now  It has been said that the B-29's won W.W.II and saved countless lives because our men never had to land on Japanese soil. This war was won  in the air and turned the tide on the entire war. We Americans owe  the lifestyle we are living NOW to those who fought THEN... an important  message that has failed to be delivered to those of us who are fortunate enough to have never lived through war.  This mailing list is dedicated to those men and women and this fabulous machine!
