Strategic Air Command B-36H 52-1363 on final approach to RAF Burtonwood (Lancashire) in October 1956 as part of a rare deployment of 16 Conquerors to the UK. SAC band on nose. A small window in the forward fuselage causes the '6' appear to be an '8'.

My dad worked and flew on the B-36 when he was in the Air Force. Pictures like this always hold special meaning for me,especially after losing him last year to cancer...thanks for posting!

Why on earth would they put the turbopro blades behind the wing? No one does it these days!

Pusher props are easier on the thrust bearings. Better engine air flow. Less FOD damage to the props. Cleaner air flow over the wings. Props are away from the ingress and egress routes of the crew. Makes it much more difficult on the wing flap designers though.

I like this photo because the plane is do rare and it evokes the power of the cold war.
