    Truly the most beautiful post WW2 bomber. The B-52 is a better aircraft but it lost the beauty in the process. :)

    Just my POV :)

    You should see the B47 in person. Quite a pretty plane. They have one at the March AFB museum.

    Were these pics taken in England? Looks like there were some RAF F-86's in one of the pics.

    "... Geez; a bomber so stylish it has whitewall tires!"

    There was a post on this site a moon-or-two-back suggesting that white wall tires lasted longer because they reflected UV rays that broke down the side walls. Germans started the practice if I recall :)

    Clever Germans :)

    I concur that the F-86's are Spanish AF. Great pics. I love that site.
