RIP sir. I had the chance to meet him and Gen Tibbets (months before he passed away) and they autographed a toy Enola Gay that I had with me.

They saved a lot of people, on both sides, and especially during the Cuban Missile Crisis (my theory at least) because the whole world knew of the real destructive power of the A-Bombs.
