B-36J Peacemaker

scan0074

This is one of the “featherweight” models that had most of the guns removed to better the aircraft’s performance. Somewhere in the house, I have a Dash-One for a B-36; featherweight or not, the -1 charts reveal a beast that needed a runway halfway around the earth to get airborne. (Just one of the many reasons I love the B-36.)
