Bombers on the Prairie: The B-29 in Kansas

Passport Special | 59m 25s

World War II was an important time in history, both on the battlefields and on the home front. Kansas has its own ties to the War effort via the construction of the Boeing B-29 Superfortress and the training of crews for these bombers. "Bombers on the Prairie" tells the story through the use of photographs, military film, and interviews with men and women involved with the B-29 and its air base.
