  • uring the final stages of World War II, an American B-29 Bomber dropped the world’s first atomic bombs over Japan. The attack was launched from an airfield on Tinian Island, one of a chain of islands in the Marianas. Today, little remains of the airfield where the Atom Age began, save for two loading pits used to haul the nukes onto the aircraft that carried them over Japan.
  • This really is the number 1 bomb loading pit. I've visited bomb loading pits all over the Pacific, and even as far as SE Asia, and I have to say this is the best. Worth the airfare.
