Nice. R3350, 3500hp.

Lots of pistons going up and down (72).

What shutter speed did you use to get the props to appear smeared like they would be with a film camera? Did you have to do anything special?

Fred...….

I am just using 1/250" of a sec. I will do a manual shutter speed. I did some at 1/125" of a second and they tended to have the plane look a bit blurred.

My late father-in-law did more than 55 missions over Korea in one of those.

Lucius.....

Thank you for sharing. Your father-in-law did duty above & beyond....rest his soul. And I bet he had time in the Boeing B-50 with the bigger engines.

Happy New Year !!

Imagine how the hearts of our poor POW's skipped a beat to see hundreds of those bad boys coming in low and raining fire and destruction on their captors! Gives me goose bumps. Hats off to the greatest generation.

Beautiful! First ever fully pressurized high altitude bomber. Cost more to develop in WW2 then the “Bomb”.

I can hear the roar of the engines as it approaches, passes overhead, and then fades in the distance. Lovely photo of an old bird, thanks so much for this one, Mr. Kemper.

Any time I see and hear just one of these Monsters I am in total awe.
It's Hard to imagine hundreds of B29s in the air over Germany.
My Uncle was a gunner and survivor of a B29 shot down over Germany.
Beautiful picture, especially in Bland and White.

William Hudspeth - The Boeing B-29 never flew against targets in Germany nor even in the ETO. It was used by the USAAF in the Pacific theater of war against targets in Japan.

Your uncle was likely a crewman on a B-17 or B-24 if he was shot down over Germany.
