Boeing B-29 Restoration

This site is about the restoration of the Strategic Air and Space Museum's Boeing B-29 "Man O War". The SAS is located on I-80 near Ashland, Ne. Single click on photos to enlarge.

Wednesday, June 14, 2006
















The SAS Museum's B-29 was built by Bell Aircraft, Marietta, Ga. on Aug. 4, 1945.
The plane was assigned to several bases in the 40's and assigned to Hamilton AFB in 1951.
The plane was assigned to the 11th Radar Calibration Sq. and in 1954 to the 4754th
Radar Evaluation Flight. If anyone knows about zero seven six and has knowledge
about Radar Calibration or Radar Evaluation please send a comment.
Zero Seven Six was dropped from inventory and transfered to the SAC Museum in 1959.
It was polished with orange markings and over the years it was painted grey and black
and named "Man O War".

I served in the U S A F ; from 4-1-1958 to 5-30-1962. I did most of my time at Hamilton AFB,Ca. Working at first on R-3350 engines in the recip shop(78th field maintenance squadron) , for their B-29's . they had 5 , i think . The 4754th WEATHER Recon squadron. BUT, they did NOT do weather Recon. that was a cover. their job was to go out to sea , then see if they could penetrate our radar stations ,without getting caught. They seldom got caught (detected) by our radar sites. The engines were junk,had a 550 hour time limit, but seldom lasted 350 hours.The last 12 planes were scrapped ,when an inspector found the wing spars corroded. The other 7 B-29's were stationed in Guam.

I flew the B-29 at Randolph in 1954 as a 4-engine trainer. Your restoration job looks great but to nit-pick, where are the clocks? The aircraft I flew all had a standard USAF clock installed on the far lower left/right corner of the main panels. I never flew the right seat but I sure looked at the left clock alot while doing holding patterns, range and ADF approaches and that clock was always behind some box on the side console that blocked it from sight unless you leaned way forward. I only got 34 hours in the 29 in training and never flew one afterwards. Went on to KC-97's which seemed like Cadillacs after the 29. Glad I had a chance to fly the bird though.

ANSWER--- You are right, several positions require clocks. The clocks and yoke wheel caps are usually the first items removed when a crew retires their plane. We are looking for replacements.
Any out there?
