The Boeing B-29 Superfortress was a four-engine propeller-driven heavy bomber that was flown primarily by the United States in World War II and theKorean War. The B-29 remained in service in various roles throughout the 1950s. The British Royal Air Force flew the B-29 and used the nameWashington for the type, and the Soviet Union produced an unlicensed copy as the Tupolev Tu-4. The name "Superfortress" was derived from that of its well-known predecessor, the B-17 Flying Fortress. The B-29 was the progenitor of a series of Boeing-built bombers, reconnaissance aircraft, trainers and tankers including the B-29 variant, B-50 Superfortress. Later jet-powered models from Boeing (the B-47 Stratojet and the B-52 Stratofortress) carried on the lineage.
