Daily Question # 284 July 26, 2009

Posted by Chandrakant in Uncategorized.

Find  the  Monthly  Set – 8  here .

Connect  A  and  B .

( Take  C  as  a  clue  to  work  out  B ; apologies  for  the  quality  of   B , it  was  the  only  one  I  could  find )







The  connect – The  planes  which  dropped  the  Atom  Bombs  on  Hiroshima  and  Nagasaki

A – Enola  Gay  Tibbets , mother  of  Paul  Tibbets after  whom  the  B-29  which  dropped  the  bomb  over  Hiroshima  was  named ( as  Enola  Gay )

B – Capt  Frederick  C  Bock , after  whom  the  B-29  which  dropped  the  bomb  over  Nagasaki  was  named ( as  Bock’s  Car ) . He  was  the  actual  commander  of  the  aircraft  even  though  he  was  assigned  to  another  aircraft  known  as  The  Great  Artiste which  accompanied  Bock’s  Car on  the  Nagasaki  mission .

C  is  a  good’  wagon  also  known  as  a  ‘boxcar’  and  the  name  Bock’s  Car  is  a  pun  on  this  slang  and  the  good  officer .

Goes  uncracked !!
