    OK! Here is a tough one.

    On August 6 and August 9 1945, Atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki respectively.
    Only two B-29s participated in BOTH raids. One was Bocks Car.
    Bocks Car served as an observation plane in the raid on Hiroshima and actually dropped the bomb on Nagasaki.

    What other plane participated in both the Hiroshima and the Nagasaki atomic bomb raids ?

    I have no problem at all with being proved wrong. Especially when being proved wrong leaves the world a better place, than being proved right...

      Wrong!

      Enola Gay only participated in the Hiroshima raid.

      I told you this one was harder.

        Taking a wild guess, Bocks Car?

          Well yes, but I think you should read the question over more carefully.

              In a French article, Strategic Bombing on Japan (Histoire de Guerre number 34, March 2003) the author named Full House which was in reserve at Iwo Jima, and "The Great Artist".

              So I would say "The Great Artist".

                "Great Artiste" it is.

                The "Great Artiste" participated in both the Hiroshima and the Nagasaki raids as a photo observation plane.
                Interestingly, the "Great Artiste" was piloted by Maj Charles W Sweeney over Hiroshima; the same Maj Sweeney who piloted "Bocks Car" that dropped the bomb on Nagasaki.

                La Palice, you're good at this.
