The B-29 Superfortress was designed for high level bombing. The plane had a pressurized fuselage, which allowed it to fly above the range of most enemy fighters. The planes were sent in 1944 to the Marianas Island to make attacks on the Japanese mainland. The most famous of these planes, the Enola-Gay, dropped the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima.
