1945, Little Boy (Hiroshima Atomic Bomb)

“Little Boy” was the code name for the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945 by the Boeing B-29 Superfortress Enola Gay, piloted by Colonel Paul Tibbets of the 393rd Bombardment Squadron, Heavy, of the United States Army Air Forces. It was the first atomic bomb to be used as a weapon. The second, the “Fat Man”, was dropped three days later on Nagasaki.
