Boeing B-29 over Osaka

Here we see a Boeing B-29 Superfortress flying over Osaka during one of the American bombing raids on the city. To the right of the aircraft we can see Osaka Castle, which at the time was part of the Osaka Arsenal, a major arms producer. On the aircraft itself we can see one of the upper gun turrets, while the first engine on the right appears to be leaking rather a lot of oil!
