National Museum of the US Air Force. This B-29, 'Bockscar', was the plane that dropped the second atomic bomb, named 'Fat Man', over Nagasaki on August 9th, 1945. On that day Bockscar was actually flown by the crew of another B-29, 'The Great Artiste', and was commanded by Major Charles W. Sweeney and co-piloted by Captain Charles Albury.
