    I think it is actually a C124 Globemaster (definately not a B24). If you look at the shape of the engine nacelles and the position of the wings (low), it looks very like a B29; however look at the double row of windows on the fuselage. It is a C124.

    If I remember correctly The C124 used the same wings, engine and empennage of the B29.

    i find that a very sad pic, the guys in that plane must have died only seconds prior to the chap taking the photo, very poinient indeed, is this yours packin?
    Judging from the car it may have been a somewhat populated area and the picture taken from a resident. Hopefully they bailed out in time.Phil, if you mean do I posses the original photo, no. I came across it on the internet.

    I'm not sure there is a double row of windows as it looks like there is a 3rd row of whatever on the bottom.(small) In comparing that little car I doupt it's a B-29. Still, it's a amazing the engine was still running no matter what plane it is. Whoever took it,had a camera and was at the right place at the right time.
