    The plane was a B29 named Enola Gay after the pilots mother, the pilot was Paul Warfield Tibbets, at the time he was a colonel.

    In the 1980's the synth pop group OMD released an album called Organisation and a song on the album called Enola Gay went on to be a single success selling more than 5 million copies.

    I am not the biggest fan of 80's music but the song has always stuck with me.
