About #42-24791 (This Plane Chain)
Our B-29; 42-24791, otherwise known as "The Big Time Operator" is a special B-29. "The Big Time Operator" was built and entered service in 1944. She was assigned to the 1st Bomb Squadron and flew 46 combat missions over Japan throughout 1945. Her missions ranged from striking strategic infrastructure like aircraft factories, to naval mining operations. "The Big Time Operator" is accredited with downing not one but two Japanese aircraft via its defensive turrets. After World War Two upon returning to the mainland United States, "The Big Time Operator" made its final flight to the China Lake Naval Weapons Station where she sat in the desert sun for nearly 40 years as a ground target. Eventually both the nose and tail sections from "The Big Time Operator" were recovered from Chian lake before the rest of the aircraft was scrapped.These Plane Chains are crafted from the skin of the tail gunner section of 42-24791. The Plane Chains team was extremely fortunate to obtain the section, which had mostly damaged, otherwise unusable skin. Our team couldn't be more honoured to give such an incredible aircraft a second chance to be appreciated in the hands of collectors.
