56th Strategic Reconnaissance Squadron

        Ed Stringer wrote, "I was stationed at Yokota AFB, Japan from May until Nov. '52. My 56th Reconnaissance Squadron flew WB-29s on daily missions over Korea to collect  weather data for the bomber raids.  Our secondary mission was to fly into the eye of typhoons in the Pacific Ocean."  Ed pointed out that the B-29 top and bottom turrets were removed from the WB version and replaced with a "box" on the top of the fuselage.
