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.

No, Zlata is not a grafetti artist

We planned to have a group shoot at a local lake in Anchorage, Alaska in May 2010. About 10 minutes before the shoot the wind picked up and it started pouring. The other models didn’t show but Zlata was already there and we were in a mood to shoot so we went to our favorite underpass in Spenard – it’s usually covered with grafetti and looks grungy.

This was our first chance to shoot with Zlata – wow – what a blast! She has an incredible attitude, poise, confidence, is fun to shoot with, and also has the blackest hair that I’ve ever seen. Hopefully I’ll have another chance or two dozen to shoot with this lovely young lass.
