Re: B-36 Question

Then, there’s the one-off cargo version, the XC-99 which flew on for a number of years. Used to be parked at Kelly AFB looking rather sad. Carted off somewhere.

Re: Passenger oxygen on military aircraft

The C-17 has oxygen masks that are very similar to airliner ones installed in the sidewall for the integral seating that pop out of little panels near your shoulder when you're sitting on the seats. They are deployed much like an airliners, triggered by high cabin altitude or selected to deploy man...

I feel bad for the EWOs on that plane! “The three electronic warfare officers (EWOs), also known as “Ravens” or “Crows,” were stationed in what would be the bomb bay in a normal B-47. On typical missions, the EWOs spent about 12-14 hours working in th...

Re: Best Replacement Engines for the B52

As a former B-52 mechanic, I can tell you, new engine cowling alone would be worth their weight in gold to the maintainers. The current ones were over-engineered, and so difficult to rig once you tried to cannabalize it to another aircraft.

Re: Report: USAF to buy Transaero NTU 747-8s for Air Force One

As a member of the US Air Force, and someone who cares about how the military spends their money, it’s frustrating to see them spend it on an air refueling system that will never be used real world. Most of our cargo aircraft only do it to train on too, which eats up so much money.
