Some history of the military air base, Pyote (Texas), and its mission after World War II to store and preserve surplus military aircraft. Two famous airplanes were stored there: the Enola Gay, the B-29 used to drop the first atomic bomb on Hiroshima, and the Swoose, the sole surviving B-17D from the Pacific theater during World War II. Both aircraft are now housed at the Smithsonian.
