Fwd: Amazing declassified pix




Pix from Tinian Island as the B-29 "Enola Gay" was being loaded.
Notice the "Top Secret" stamp on some of the photos. In the last few pix notice the CRUDE sheet metal work on the casing and fins of "Little Boy" - the bomb that was dropped on Hiroshima.......
Gives a little look into the other side of the engineering on the first atomic bombs, the mechanical and logistical work that it took to handle, store, transport, and load them.

          Declassified Historical photographs.
