April 12, 2015 – Never-before-seen World War II plans to drop an atomic bomb on Hiroshima have surfaced after 70 years. The hand-drawn plans are part of a collection compiled by Captain Robert Lewis, co-pilot on the Enola Gay, the B-29 bomber that destroyed the Japanese city on Japan on August 6, 1945. The documents include flight logs and a report submitted after the mission. They will be auctioned in New York on April 29 and are valued at $440,000.
