B-29 or B-50 Superfortress, unknown S/N



The X-7A-1 missile was launched from two airplanes: the B-29B-60-BO S/N 44-84073 (my code B-29-073) and the B-29-55-BO S/N 44-86402 (my code B-29-402). We don't know which missile was dropped by which plane, so the generic B-29 code is used for each of the launches.
