History of the Boeing B Superfortress
The United States started to work on the B 29 before World War II. The first prototype made its maiden flight from Boeing Field, Seattle on 21 September 1942.
The B 29 featured a fuselage design with circular cross-section for strength. The need for pressurized compartments in the cockpit area also led to the B 29 being one of very few American combat aircraft of World War II to have a stepless cockpit design.
Manufacturing involved four main-assembly factories: a pair of Boeing operated plants at Renton, Washington (Boeing Renton), and Wichita, Kansas (now Spirit AeroSystems), a Bell plant at Marietta, Georgia near Atlanta ("Bell-Atlanta"), and a Martin plant at Omaha, Nebraska ("Martin-Omaha" – Offutt Field)
