Surviving Boeing B-29 Superfortress Bombers

After World War II, many of the existing B-29 aircraft were sent for storage, and ultimately scrapping at aircraft storage and disposal facilities around the U.S. The remaining B-29s helped build the initial bomber inventory of the Strategic Air Command when it was formed in March of 1946. Many served during the Korean War and as aerial tankers during the 1950s.

Of the 3,970 Boeing B-29 Superfortress bombers used in World War II, the Korean War and part of the Cold War, only about 20 survive.
