I know of 100 B-25's buried in Germany.

And if any-one is interested, I have a bunch of '51 parts buried in my back yard from OMT
I've got a 100' 3-phase extention cord. Will that do?Don't you need to get the garden digged up for planting of your wife's vegetables? With Geo's bulldozer it should be easy. The power cable doesn't have to be be long.
Carswell and Tinker were the two that came to mind, where a tornado seriously damaged aircraft.Carswell was a SAC base in the late 40's, thru 1992. Only B-36's, B-52's, B-58's and KC-135's were assigned there, besides various jet fighters. Consolidated and it's succeeding companies have been at the production facility on the west side of the field since it was built. B-24's, B-32's and B-36's were all produced there. Mustangs were built in the NAA facility in Grand Prairie, about 30 miles away. NAA left that location right after the war and Chance Vought moved in.
At the time of the 1952 tornado, any B-17's or P-51's would have been transient aircraft. SAC bases were highly unfriendly to transient aircraft, so the probability of there being more than one or two being there at the time is very low.
Funny, I was just going to ask if he had a color pictures of said aircraft.Roadking01.....is that you?
BLASPHEMER!!! Get Thee Behind Me Satan!!!pffft! P-51s, feh!
The man said B-17s!!!
Get a cable and get diggin'.So on top of the P-51s and B-17s we have a graveyard full of P-47s, B-29s, C-47s, and C-54s.....its a freakin' gold mine
If the information of the original poster is not wrong and we are looking for B-17 and not B-29, in the mid-1950s AFAIK only SB-17 (air-sea rescue) were still used in bigger numbers (bigger than 1-2). Is there a base in Northern Texas where SB-17 were stationed?Tinker AFB was hit by a tornado in the era that predated tornado warnings. A number of B-29's were destroyed. Tinker AFB was the Air Depot for the B-29, so there were always some around...
