About This File

FSX Boeing B-29 873rd BS, 498th BG Saipan 1945. This is a repaint of the payware Virtavia Boeing B29 Superfortress, depicting 44-24614, 'Joltin' Josie The Pacific Pioneer', the first B-29 to arrive in the Marianas on 12th October 1944. Assigned to the 873rd Bomb. Sqdn., 498th Bomb. Gp., and piloted by Maj. Jack Catton, 'Josie' completed 24 missions from Isley Field on Saipan before being handed over to Capt. Wilson Currier. On their first mission on April 1st 1945, 'Josie' suffered a catastrophic power failure on take-off, plunged into the sea and exploded. There were no survivors from the 13 men on board. She lies there to this day. By Dave Quincey.
