B-47, my dad was on the flight line down at McConnell AFB in the early fifties..........
He really like the plane, was the B- 47 one of the first to use JATO? I have been enamored with planes since I was a kid, I dont have the stomach for flying. I get Air&Space each month and I read it top to bottom. I guess I'm in love with the ole radial engines......
I go to U Tube and watch and listen to them do a multi engine start up. Thats if I'm not on here.............. jdadoug

As far as I know, the B47 was one of the first, if not the first military airplane to use JATO ( Jet Assisted Take Off). I know some early model C-130's also used a smaller version of it at one time.

Radial engines are an enginnerring marvel as far as I am concern - but I am scared to death of spinning props ans always tried to stay from them
