IntroducingMiss Liberty Belle, also known as 44-62208, a Boeing B-29 Superfortress and MotoArt’s newest bomber! She was delivered to the USAAF on September 4, 1945, too late for World War II, but just in time to become a Strategic Air Command (SAC) bomber.
The B-29 Superfortress was a state-of-the-art, American-made heavy bomber. B-29’s were heavily relied upon in the Pacfic Theater of WWII, notably in the bombing of Tokyo and dropping the atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. After the war, many B-29’s went on to form the first bomber fleet of the newly formed SAC, and were used during the Korean War.
The Superfortress was a technological marvel, featuring:
Heated and pressurized crew cabin areas
Dual wheeled tricycle landing gear
Computer controlled fire control system
Remote controlled gun turrets and gunnery suite
The B-29 was designed to meet the U.S. Army Air Corps requirements for a superbomber that could fly 400 mph, and deliver 20,000 lbs of payload to a target 2,667 miles away.
*Important Notice – Please Read Carefully
PlaneTags are made from actual retired aircraft fuselage, not merely stamped metal. Because PlaneTags are made from real fuselage, each PlaneTag bears the colour, thickness, and wear and tear from the portion of the fuselage from which it was cut and it is therefore rare to create two identical PlaneTags. These variations and imperfections are not product flaws. They are part of the beauty of PlaneTags. As a result, you will have a limited option to select the colour of your PlaneTag. The images on this website are provided for reference only and should not be used as the sole basis for choosing a particular PlaneTag.
