The last B-36 built in 1954! Excellent view on that one, Hal! Thank You! Cheers from Indiana!
At Chanute AFB in Rantoul, Ill. One was on display in the early 60's. Thanks for the posting !
I would have loved to hear one of these with all 3 turning and 4 burning at full power.

Great picture!
While TDY from K.I. Sawyer AFB in 1961 attending Pratt & Whitney J-57 school our van passed by a B-36 sitting on ramp and it was monstrous. I was very impressed at the size.
Those were built near me..Ft. Worth. As a kid growing up on southeastern Oklahoma, the unmistakable drone of those six prop engines 9complimented by 4 jet engines!) was instantly recognizable as a B-36. Nothing sounds like one of those great planes. Just amazing, but turned out to be only a stop gap between prop planes and the soon-to-be B-4 jet bomber...sequeing to the immortal B-52...still flying!

This is one of the most beautiful aircraft ever built.

William Crooker, that one from Rantoul, that I had to march past during the 9-month school I attended at Chanute AFB in '71-'72, was dismantled and moved to the Castle Air Museum in Atwater, Ca. not too many years ago.
My father-in-law, Ernest E. Booth, flew these out of Walker AFB. Once flew an exercise mission with a pieced-together crew and when they got to altitude they discovered the auto-pilot was inop! 13 hours of hand flying--amazing! 6 turning and 4 burning.
Beautiful Plane Wonder what the Fuel consumption rate per hr was and the distance it could travel.

Sweet. Quite a horse. I grew up near Westover AFB (KCEF), a major SAC Base in the 50's. At night my father would say "listen, that's a B-36". He could hear the jets over the Pratts.
6 X Pratt/Whitney 4360 Radials, 3800hp each. 4 X GE J-47 turbojets, 5200 ponds thrust each.
MGTW 410,000 pounds, 200kts cruise, combat range 4000nm, Max Alt FL 440.

336 spark plugs for each B-36!
336 spark plugs for each B-36!

My math is a bit rusty, so how many cylinders—per engine—is that? Dual-plugs?
There was a B-36 at the air museum at Offutt AFB back in the 70s. A tornado had cut across the base (and within 1/4 of a mile from the housing unit we lived in) and destroyed the guard shack. A story went around about how a guy was standing in his picture window off base that overlooked the museum. Apparently he headed to the basement when he saw that Peacemaker starting to take off on its own. Sadly, I never got to see one fly as by the time I was born on a SAC bomber base, the B-52 was in use. And great shot.

That is correct Robert! 28 cylinders X 2 plugs each =56 plugs for 1 Wasp Major R4360-53. Astounding!

To Chris...That's 6 turning and 4 burning. I was a left wing chief on the b-36D.

@Jerry: I'll bet you have a lot of great stories to tell! Were you based at Carswell? Or freezing at Loring? Thank you Jerry!
Marched past that same B-36 at Chanute 83-84.

Great cast, too!

I was stationed at Biggs AFB, El Paso Texas.
Terry Wright
Lovely plane. Can somebody tell me why the front landing gear is anchored down.
To help keep the aircraft from 'taking off' during monsoon season.
jerry kapis
To Terry Wright on the front nose being tied down; When it's super windy,nose rends to raise up and cause tail damage. I had this experience several times,mostly in cyclone-type winds. I had to "ride the brakes" to control a/c from moving.
