Welcome to Warbird Wednesday! Today we are switching gears and visiting a nuclear bomber, the Boeing B-47 Stratojet, also known as the Model 450. The sleek-looking B-27 Stratojet showcased newly developed jet propulsion and 35-degree swept wings, which helped with its high speeds. The Model 450 took its first flight in 1947. This jet gained popularity quickly as it was known to fly at a high subsonic speed, could reach high altitudes to avoid enemies, and could drop nuclear bombs. This aircraft was retired in 1969 after 2,042 models were built.
