Boeing CB-29K Superfortress

Last revised April 17, 2000


The designation B-29K had originally been assigned to the hose tanker conversions of the B-29 that were eventually produced as KB-29M. Since none of the tankers ever actually used the K suffix, it was reassigned to a single B-29-BW that was used as a cargo transport and designated CB-29K.
