Tibbets and Enola Gay during Hiroshima mission, August 1945. The start of the clip shows pilot and mission commander Colonel Paul Tibbets waving from the cockpit of the B-29 bomber Enola Gay before take-off on 6 August 1945. The clips ends with the return of the aircraft to its base on North Field, Tinian, later in the day after its crew had dropped the atomic bomb 'Little Boy' on Hiroshima. This airfield in the Mariana Islands was where US B-29 bombers took off from on their missions targeting Japanese cities. The bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki took place on 6 and 9 August 1945, devastating the cities and killing hundreds of thousands, leading to a swift end to World War II.
