Boeing XPB-1 thejivebombers Naval Aviation Pre-war May 16, 2020 1 Minute First flown in 1925, the XPB-1 with its all-metal hull seemed promising enough, but was plagued by difficulties with its liquid-cooled engines. Despite the engine problems, the rugged XPB-1 was retained for testing purposes by the navy who eventually replaced the original motors with radials. Still, there was only one built.

My name is Max Pashnev, I’m amateur military historian. I would like to ask you a question on this image of B-52F from Mather AFB https://thejivebombers.com/2018/03/07/2140/ but I can’t find your direct contact. Could you please tell me how can I e-mail you?
Kind Regards, Max Pashnev.
Good to “meet” you – I’m Will. How can I help you with the image in question?
Is it possible to ask you about hi-res version of this image for my private non-commercial collection? I already have hi-res version of this plane’s image but from the left side – it is scan from Mather AFB official photo which was made in the day of plane’s arrival. It would have been great to have a right side image too. I’m fan of long-tail B-52s. Interchange of images is possible if you want.
Can do. See my contact info at the top of the home page.
