The route the Enola Gay traveled from Tinian Island to drop "Little Boy" on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945.


 

 

The man who would fly it named her Enola Gay.
With hope and destruction she was on her way.
 
She was one of many as part of “Silverplate”.
This ride into history was part of her fate.
 
The weapon was hauled out and loaded on the plane.
If successful many lives the mission would gain.
 
Rendezvousing with others the weather was clear.
They knew their target would soon be near.
 
At about mid morning Little Boy fell free.
She turned home for it was time to flee.
 
Hiroshima survived the devastating blow.
But memories are clear from 66 years ago.

Reviewed by Richard King 8/6/2011
Truely a sad time in the history of mankind, but quite possibly an event that would save many more lives than it would cost, in that it became a turning point in a terrible life costly war.

Thanks Dick
