Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Vought OS2U-3 Kingfisher:

The Kingfisher was the U.S. Navy’s main ship-based, scout and observation aircraft throughout Planet War II. Revolutionary spot welding strategies gave it a smooth, non-buckling fuselage structure. Deflector plate flaps that hung from the wing’s trailing edge and spoiler-augmented ailerons functioned like further flaps to enable slower landing speeds. Most OS2Us operated in the Pacific, exactly where they rescued several downed airmen, including Globe War I ace Eddie Rickenbacker and the crew of his B-17 Flying Fortress.

In March 1942, this airplane was assigned to the battleship USS Indiana. It later underwent a six-month overhaul in California, returned to Pearl Harbor, and rejoined the Indiana in March 1944. Lt. j.g. Rollin M. Batten Jr. was awarded the Navy Cross for creating a daring rescue in this airplane beneath heavy enemy fire on July four, 1944.

Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Boeing B-29 Superfortress &quotEnola Gay&quot:

Boeing’s B-29 Superfortress was the most sophisticated propeller-driven bomber of Planet War II and the very first bomber to house its crew in pressurized compartments. Despite the fact that designed to fight in the European theater, the B-29 located its niche on the other side of the globe. In the Pacific, B-29s delivered a selection of aerial weapons: standard bombs, incendiary bombs, mines, and two nuclear weapons.

On August 6, 1945, this Martin-constructed B-29-45-MO dropped the very first atomic weapon used in combat on Hiroshima, Japan. 3 days later, Bockscar (on display at the U.S. Air Force Museum near Dayton, Ohio) dropped a second atomic bomb on Nagasaki, Japan. Enola Gay flew as the advance climate reconnaissance aircraft that day. A third B-29, The Fantastic Artiste, flew as an observation aircraft on each missions.

Quoting Smithsonian National Air and Space Museum | Monnett Moni:

Schoolteacher John Monnett designed the Moni (mo-nee) throughout the early 1980s, and then coined the term ‘air recreation vehicle’ to describe this airplane. Monnett’s style nearly captured all the merits that so a lot of leisure pilots longed to uncover in one particular aircraft. The Moni looked excellent just sitting on the ramp. It performed properly, and an individual reasonably handy with typical shop tools could construct one particular in their personal garage. The style had considerably going for it, but like so a lot of homebuilt aircraft ahead of and since, a handful of crucial engineering lapses in the style, plus problems with the engine and propeller, relegated the Moni to the category of homebuilt aircraft that guarantee considerably in style but fail to provide. Harold C. Weston generously donated his Moni to the National Air and Space Museum in April 1992. Weston built the airplane himself and flew it far more than 40 hours.
