Atomic Bomb Loading Pit
North Field Historic District National Historic Landmark,
Tinian, Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands

Custom-built pit for loading an atomic bomb ('Little Boy') into the bomb-bay of the B-29 Superfortress 'Enola Gay' which on 6 August 1945 took the first atomic bomb delivered in anger to Hiroshima, thus sparking the beginning of the nuclear age. The atomic bomb was too big to slide it under the tail of the B-29, so a pit fitted with a hydraulic lift had to be built and the B-29 pushed over it.

The stainless steel and glass interpretative covering was built in 2005 for the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II. It contains a number of easels with large images of the bomb and bomb pit.
