Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Boeing B-29 Superfortress "Enola Gay":

Boeing’s B-29 Superfortress was the most sophisticated propeller-driven bomber of World War II and the first bomber to house its crew in pressurized compartments. Although designed to fight in the European theater, the B-29 found its niche on the other side of the globe. In the Pacific, B-29s delivered a variety of aerial weapons: conventional bombs, incendiary bombs, mines, and two nuclear weapons.

On August 6, 1945, this Martin-built B-29-45-MO dropped the first atomic weapon used in combat on Hiroshima, Japan. Three days later, Bockscar (on display at the U.S. Air Force Museum near Dayton, Ohio) dropped a second atomic bomb on Nagasaki, Japan. Enola Gay flew as the advance weather reconnaissance aircraft that day. A third B-29, The Great Artiste, flew as an observation aircraft on both missions.

Transferred from the United States Air Force.

Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Vought F4U-1D Corsair :

By V-J Day, September 2, 1945, Corsair pilots had amassed an 11:1 kill ratio against enemy aircraft. The aircraft’s distinctive inverted gull-wing design allowed ground clearance for the huge, three-bladed Hamilton Standard Hydromatic propeller, which spanned more than 4 meters (13 feet). The Pratt and Whitney R-2800 radial engine and Hydromatic propeller was the largest and one of the most powerful engine-propeller combinations ever flown on a fighter aircraft.

Charles Lindbergh flew bombing missions in a Corsair with Marine Air Group 31 against Japanese strongholds in the Pacific in 1944. This airplane is painted in the colors and markings of the Corsair Sun Setter, a Marine close-support fighter assigned to the USS Essex in July 1944.

Transferred from the United States Navy.

Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Curtiss P-40E Warhawk (Kittyhawk IA):

Whether known as the Warhawk, Tomahawk, or Kittyhawk, the Curtiss P-40 proved to be a successful, versatile fighter during the first half of World War II. The shark-mouthed Tomahawks that Gen. Claire Chennault’s "Flying Tigers" flew in China against the Japanese remain among the most popular airplanes of the war. P-40E pilot Lt. Boyd D. Wagner became the first American ace of World War II when he shot down six Japanese aircraft in the Philippines in mid-December 1941.

Curtiss-Wright built this airplane as Model 87-A3 and delivered it to Canada as a Kittyhawk I in 1941. It served until 1946 in No. 111 Squadron, Royal Canadian Air Force. U.S. Air Force personnel at Andrews Air Force Base restored it in 1975 to represent an aircraft of the 75th Fighter Squadron, 23rd Fighter Group, 14th Air Force.

Women Weight Training Tips

Gone now are the days when weight training is done by competitors in bodybuilding. Gone now are the days when only the guys would make their muscles firm in an attempt to show their strength. Today, even women know the benefits of building strong muscles and maintaining a healthy lifestyle.

So if you are a descendant of Venus and yet you want to be firm, strong and healthy, follow these weight training guides:

Work Harder
Men’s anatomical structure is different from those of women. While men can easily firm up their body through simple weight training, you cannot. Women need to work harder compared to men in order to achieve the same results. While this is clearly unfair, you can blame hormones and body electrolytes for this.

Keep the Training Balanced
What is the concentration of your training? Do you concentrate on you upper body, your legs, or your butt? Balance is the key. Work on every part of your body. There is no use having a perfect-toned leg if your butt sags like hell. The same is true to the general workout of your body. Are you improving your stamina or your strength? Balance these things as well as you are after a total body wellness, not a weight lifting competition.

Eat Well
You need to put back the energy you lost during weight training. Eat right and eat only the foods that will help you in your weight training. Do not eat anything just because you are hungry. If you do this, you will lose the very purpose of your weight training. Some women would just slack off after a hard day of weight training, do not be like them. Keep on your training and keep the protein in your food coming.

Burn More Fats
Ever heard no pain, no gain? If you are weight training you need to burn fats consistently. Play by the numbers. The more leg exercise you do, the better those legs would be. As you burn fat your muscles become firmer and more toned.

Big Tree Trainings
In the world of body building they have what they call the big tree exercises. You don’t need to go the park to do this. If you are on weight training, then its time for you to do some deadlifts, squats and the bench presses. Do this religiously and you will impress, even yourself.

Have a Regular Workout Habit
Having a regular workout habit makes you disciplined. It also makes your muscles and body adjusted to the task. If you set your mind towards the goal of having a sexier and firmer body, you whole body will follow. Try doing your weight training on a regular basis, not only when you feel it. Have a regular schedule and don’t break it. If decided to workout every other day, then work out every other day.

Set Goals
Goals will keep you focused, and nothing is impossible for focused women undergoing a good weight training plan. If you want to lose fat by training then focus on achieving that goal. Goal keeps us on track and we are on track we can accomplish anything.
