B-29 Superfortress "T-Square 54"

To support the war effort in the Pacific, a total of 3,970 B-29s were built during production. Many B-29s have been preserved, restored, and are on static display. About 22 complete B-29 airframes are currently on display in the United States.

One of the B-29 survivors, known as "T-Square 54", is located at the Museum of Flight in Seattle. It has been restored, and was wrapped in thin layer of protective covering pending move to an indoor display area. The plane was unwrapped in April of 2016 (see video below).

The facility is located at King County International Airport, also known as Boeing Field. Established in 1965, it is the largest private air and space museum in the world. A vast array of historical aircraft and space artifacts are displayed. It also hosts the largest K-12 educational programs in the world.
