B-36 - Pima Air & Space Museum - Arizona Bucket List Trip 2017
Known as the "Peacemaker", it must've worked, since it never entered combat and dropped a bomb. Its piston and jet engines were referred to as "Six Turnin' and Four Burnin'".
Pima Air & Space Museum, Tucson
B-36 at the top center.
One of my alltime favorite aricraft. Living in Coral Gables in the 1950s, I would see and hear the B-36s from the Homestead SAC Base. Three decades ago I missed seeing the one at Wright-Patterson Air Force Base due to bad weather. So 6 decades later here I am!
The B-36 is featured in this movie (still available) with at least 20 minutes of beautiful official footage. You can hear its unique, unmistakable sound.
It took 3½ minutes to walk around with the GoPro. I sped it up and smoothed it out. (Select Next to bypass the video.)
