An impressive color photo of a visiting "Radar Calibration" B-29-40-MO, 44-86263, with partial wing covers, just after a heavy snow. The photo was taken at either Ladd Field or Eielson AFB down the road at Mile-Post 26. It is possibly a 98th BG B-29, but no details reveal its true mission – either calibration of the few Alaska-based radars or to record Soviet radar centimeter band wavelengths. (USAF photo)
