Remember the Last of the Superfort Raids

Remember the Last of the Superfort Raids: Andersen Air Force Base joined the Guam Visitor’s Bureau on Aug. 15— the 60th anniversary of the day 143 B-29 Superfortress bombers of the 315th Bombardment Wing returned from a run over the oil fields at Akita, Japan, to unveil a memorial to the Second World War’s final missions flown out of Guam. The monument is situated on Northwest Field, which served as the staging area for many bombing missions until the final flight of the 315th in 1945. Participants in the ceremony included retired Lt. Col. Paul Tibbets, pilot of the famous Enola Gay.
