In this work, the "Enola Gay" is portrayed against a backdrop of a Pacific dawn. The rising sun, of course, is the symbol of Japan, but, in this case, it is a whole new dawn - for the world and also for the United States. This is at the point when the "Enola Gay" crew executed a 360-degree turn over broken clouds above Iwo Jima. The time is 5:55 a.m. and, at an altitude of 9,300 feet, the aircraft that were in trail were allowed to close formation with "Enola Gay." The airplane is coming towards the viewer and a new era is aviation is dawning. Things would never be the same again.

Countersigners: Paul Tibbets, Thomas W. Ferebee, Theodore VanKirk, George R. Caron, Richard H. Nelson
