Two airmen pushing a trolley with contents covered by canvas. They are moving it towards B-29 Superfortress, "Dave's Dream," sitting on the airfield ramp, surrounded by armed Military Police guards. Airmen cover the bomb bay door and lower part of the B-29 with a canvas to prevent the nuclear device from being seen during loading. The canvases are removed after loading and the aircraft's engines are started. Bomb bay doors are then closed.
