Not going tit for tat, but I have been seeking sources about how many B-29's were on Tinian. I found this SeaBee history that says that Tinian accomodated 450 B-29's by the end of the war. See TINIAN IN WWII – TEAMWORK AND EFFORT.
Another interesting link: From the memoirs of Col. Charles T. VanVliet.
Crews did one day mission prep, mission day (15.5 hour round trip), and one day rest. This would equate to having each unit do a cycle of one day training, one day bombing mission, and one day rest. That implies 1/3 of all aircraft flying missions on any given day (at the maximum rate).

I have been inputting my orders for the campaign game first turn since July 4, 2009. I'm getting close. In another month or two, I might be able to run the turn!
