The B-47

This is a B-47, on take-off:


I first saw them fly at Davis-Monthan AFB, AZ (Tucson.)  They were loud and smokey, even without the JATO (jet assisted take off) bottles.

While the B-47 takeoff is impressive, I would have liked to have been flying the T-Bird (T-33) chase plane.  To be ‘allowed’ to fly that low was a ‘license to steal!’  (mmdh)
