Very cool plane, I got to climb around in it a couple weeks ago. It’s last assignment in the SAC was as an atomic training plane, so it has the framework in the bomb bay that would allow the early bomb’s to be attached to the shackle.

Lucky! I've seen that B-29 a couple times on static display, but have never gotten to crawl around in it.

Mounting a atomic bombing reenactment does seem in questionable taste I think.

There's a long list of reenactments I don't want to see: Bataan death march, firebombing of Dresden, battle of Shiloh, etc.

I love airshows, but recreation of acts of carnage seems incompatible with happy families walking around eating brats and soft-serve.
