History of a really-big aircraft

Post by Flyvapnet on Fri Dec 18, 2009 5:09 pm


The Convair B-36 'Peacemaker' was a strategic bomber built by Convair and operated solely by the United States Air Force (USAF). The B-36 was the largest mass-produced piston engine aircraft ever made. It had the longest wingspan of any combat aircraft ever built (230 ft [70 m]), although there have been larger military transports. The B-36 was the first bomber capable of delivering nuclear weapons from within a fully enclosed bomb bay. With a range greater than 6,000 mi (9,700 km) and a maximum payload of 72,000 lb (33,000 kg), the B-36 was the first operational bomber with an intercontinental range. This set the standard for subsequent USAF long range bombers, such as the B-52 Stratofortress, B-1 Lancer, and B-2 Spirit.
