My Grandmother recently passed away and these are some of the many interesting historical items I found at her house. She actually worked on these planes and others during the war, in a "Rosie the Riveter" capacity at the Boeing plant in Wichita. She was always quite proud of her work t, and collected all sorts of items related to Boeing planes and World War Two.
These are 10 8x10 photographs of various World War Two era Boeing Aircraft bombers-including the B-17 and B-29 models that saved the world! Most, if not all of these pictures were taken at or above Boeing Wichita, right in Kansas.
I thought one of the coolest ones was the picture of the 1,000th B29 built in Wichita during the war. You can see all the graffiti/encouragement/propaganda markings the workers painted all over the plane. I also am throwing in a Plane Talk newspaper (Boeing's internal paper) that tells the story of the return of the 1,000th B-29 in 1949 and all of the missions it flew.
I'll be posting even more items like this in the coming days, so stay tuned!
