I saw a documentary a few months back about a B-29 that was rebuilt in place in northern Iceland. Just as the crew was taxiing for takeoff a thing called the "PUTT PUTT" came loose and burnt the plane to the ground. The crew barely got out uninjured. I wanted to read up on the B-29 while I had a chance.

Thanks for that tip. I just watched the show. It was a shame to get that far and then have the bird burn up.

If you are a researcher on the B-29
this manual is a must have.
THANK YOU for making it available...
