Enola Gay Hangar

Saves: 6
Check-ins: 5
The Enola Gay Hangar is located on the Historic Wendover Airfield. Even though the hangar no longer covers the historical aircraft (it is located in D.C.), the hangar still remains one of the most endangered historical sites in the country. However, money has been pumped into restoring this legendary origination point, where Enola Gay took off from at 0245 hours, August 6, 1945 to drop the first bomb on Hiroshima, Japan.

Everyone knows the Enola Gay dropped the first atomic bomb. But do you know the second plane to drop an a-bomb? Hint, see photo above
