B-47 Stratojet Specifications. 

Here's some information that was previously above top secret about the B-47.  When the B-29's and B-36's were decommissioned we had the all new B-47 Stratojet which could out fly anything in the sky.  This large bomber, with a jet fighter canopy was our main Strategic Air Command bomber and our first line of air defense.  We didn't have any other aircraft with the capabilities that were needed to take this role in defense of our country, that's why what I'm going to tell you was above top secret.  My supervisor was a former B-47 pilot.  He flew all of the previous bombers and was given the new job of being a B-47 Pilot.  One of the duties of pilot was to inspect the airplane prior to flight, Preflight.  One tools that he had to use was a ruler, yes, a 12 inch ruler, this was the secret!  He had to measure the crack in the wings before every flight.  The cracks were the secret that we couldn't let out.  The design was flawed and all of the wings of the B-47 had cracks.  If the crack exceeded 12 inches, the plane was unfit to fly.  If it was under 12 inches, the plane could be flown but was limited to a 1/4 G maneuver.  We couldn't let the enemy know that our first line of SAC defense had cracked wings.

Please Note:  The specifications on this page are only for a single model of this airplane other models of the B-47 Stratojet may vary.  This page has a great aircraft art gallery of the b-47 with aviation art prints, posters, pictures and photos.

The B-47 became the first modern bomber to fill the ranks of General  Curtis Lemay's new Strategic Air Command. With long range, high altitude capabilities, the "Stratojet" became the backbone of SAC in the early 1950's. As fast as many early jet fighters, with sophisticated defenses and operational altitudes of up to 40,000 feet, the B-47 was a strong deterrent. 29"x 22 ½" print is signed and numbered by the artist and B-47 test pilot A.M.
