"The B-47E Stratojet" by Mark Karvon

The B-47 Stratojet was designed and built by the Boeing Company during the early days of the "Cold War." It  was America's first jet bomber. The airplane was considered radical at the time due to its swept wings and six pod-mounted jet engines. And this girl could really go, outrunning the fighter jets of the day. The configuration of today's modern airliners is a direct descendant of the B-47. Eventually, more than 2000 of these sleek airplanes were ordered, making them the workhorse of the Strategic Air Command. Capable of delivering a multi-megaton nuclear weapon, the Stratojet was the muscle in the "Big Stick" that was the American bomber force throughout the early "Cold War". The B-47 Stratojet is truly an unsung hero of her day.  Mark Karvon's exciting depiction shows one of these innovative aircraft from the 305th Bombardment Wing (Medium) out of MacDill AFB in Florida cruising above the cloud tops.  You can click on the thumbnail image for a larger view, then click your browser's BACK button to return here.
