When this bomb-drop photograph was released, its public information
caption described how these Superfortresses were 'bringing the war home to
the communist hordes'. The myth that the enemy were mindless cattle
persisted long after seasoned infantrymen of the Chinese Peoples
Volunteers acquitted themselves well against the US Army and US Marines.
The 'square H' on the tail is the indentifier for the 98th BG, which came to
Yokota, near Tokyo, in August 1950, and remained in the combat zone
throughout the war. The most prominent aircraft seen in this photograph is
Wichita-built B-29 45-21721 'Tail Wind', assigned to teh 98th BG's 344th BS
(US Air Force).
