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.
