"Basically it needed to be plowed flat and strengthened," says Dik Daso, curator of modern military aircraft at the National Air and Space Museum. At night, with no machines, Allied airmen and Serbian peasants cleared boulders and filled in potholes. "Using ox wagons, the peasants would go to the nearby stream bed, get rock and sand, and bring the stuff up the hill to the runway site, in this never-ending daisy chain," says Daso.

Over the years, some parts of the Enola Gay were replaced in normal use and others were lost or taken by collectors, said Dik Daso, the Smithsonian's curator of modern military aircraft.
The Enola Gay has been restored so completely that it would probably start if fueled, officials said.But because components are so old it, wouldn't be flight worthy.Curators restored each part to the way it looked on "mission day," down to particular radio tubes used at the time, Daso said.

Daso said it's important for Americans to see the plane and realize its importance.
"This airplane is part of our history and part of who we are," he said.
