More > Strategic Air Command in the 1950s into the mid 1960s. The B-47 was an outgrowth of WWII research and development efforts, and the prototype aircraft first flew in December of 1947. The unique six-jet design featured twin engine pods on the wing near the fuselage, and one outboard. It also incorporated an elegant bicycle-type landing gear with two-wheel struts on the forward and aft fuselage and outrigger wheels. In 1956, over 1300 B-47s and 250 RB-47s were on alert. It was the high water mark for the aircraft, which was fully supplanted by the B-52 by 1967. This B-47 pilot’s flight operating handbook was originally produced by the USAF.

In October 1962, the United States and Soviet Russia nearly played into a world-wide nuclear holocaust which historian Arthur M. Schlessinger, Jr., called "the most dangerous moment in human... More > history." The errors in judgment and diplomacy during the Cuban Missile Crisis, by both sides, are only now being fully realized. War was narrowly avoided, but the U. S. had marshaled its full military might and was prepared to engage the former USSR on its own turf as well as in Cuba. Were it not for the readiness and dedication of our men and women in uniform, it may have been a different story. But men did die during the Cuban Missile Crisis and one of them was my brother-in-law whom I hardly knew. Capt. Bob Dennis was an electronic warfare officer aboard a sophisticated B-47 outfitted for black ops reconnaissance when the aircraft went down in Bermuda, killing all aboard. Were it not for several coincidences, Bob would not have been aboard that flight. But then, was it really such a coincidence!< Less
