This gallery features photos taken by Dr. E.M. Gillum, who served as a mechanic with the 315th in Guam during WWII. He is now retired and spending his free time writing a history of the 3350 engine.
One of the unique aspects of the 315th Bomb Group is the "Radar Wing" which greatly improved bombing accuracy over the standard B-29. It was about the size of a Cessna 150 wing, and attached to the underside of the fuselage.
