Atomic Bomb loading site
On this site the Enola Gay and Box Car were mated with Fat Boy and Little Boy. The bombs were so large they had to dig pits to lower them low enough to fit under the bomb bay doors.

Tinian is actually located in the Federated states of Micronesia not Guam. I just wasn't sure how to post it as such.

Actually, the first bomb, dropped from the Enola Gay, was called "Little Boy".

Also, Tinian is part of the U.S. Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, not the FSM.
