The YB-36 got the greenhouse cockpit.

TNX!
As I have passed through Wikipedia during my surf for the topic, One can consider the eyes to start fading :-(
But since my childhood I've always enjoyed to be read aloud, and this is quite much the same ;-)

Corsning: my anti-virus blocks your picture above and tells me it comes from a site with malware.

And yeah, the B-36 is truly enormous.

For me it says 'remote linking forbidden'.

It puts it into perspective when you see the B-36 next to the B-52.

 

I had to check the specs. The B-36 is ~3ft (0.9m) longer, has a 45ft (13.7m) wider wingspan, has 20% more wing area and is 6ft (1.85m) taller!

Hi Dweff,

 

compared to YOUR size, the B-36 IS big, isn't it?

BTW, this picture shows the B-100 combination (number comes from adding the components):

C-47-B-17-B-29-B-36.jpg

The idea behind this was to maximize the performance of bombers by combining them. The project was discontinued, for unknown reasons.

 

Regards, RT
