Hi there,

today I met with some of my friends for our monthly meeting and during this we had a lively discussion. One of my old friends (age 80 years) talked about his time as Flak gunner/helper during WWII. He said that in 1944 he saw a B-29 flying over Austria at least he is pretty sure about this and I have to mention that te really knows the difference between a B-17, B-24 and a B-29 and also about ost of the other Bombers. I told him that I dont think so because at least at that time all B-29 went to the Pacific area.

Another friend of mine said that the Brits had one B-29 in 1944 which was used as Churchills travel aircraft (something I have never heard of, and which I really do not believe ) was there ever a B-29 converted as a travel aircraft? and could it be possible that a B-29 was flying over Europe in 1944?

And yes I know that there were B-29s over Europe some time after the war.

Your help would be appreciated.




Keep on modeling
