Air Force Legends 215: Boeing B-50

Air Force Legends 215: Boeing B-50
Each book in this series describes an induvidual aircraft. Development and testing are covered as well as its career and the actions, it carried out. Its history is shown by many photographs (most of them b/w, showing detail-images from inside and outside, photographs covering development / testing and cockpit close ups). Reprints from original documents (flight and maintenance manuals), as well as detail drawings give a good impression of the structure and the assembly of the type.

This was the USAF answer to Ryan Fireball. Despite being overshadowed by the B-36 and B-47, the Boeing B-50 was the primary atomic bomber of SAC for nearly seven years. This latest volume in Steve Ginter's popular Air Force Legends series explores every model of the second Superfortress, including some previously little-known variants. Bombers, reconnaissance platforms, tankers, test birds and trainers are examined in extraordinary detail, supported by photos, drawings and technical illustrations, hundreds of which appear publically for the first time. A concise text, supported by insightful captions, covers operational and hardware details from its atomic role to unit assignments and deployments. Written by former USAF Museum senior staffer, Geoff Hays, this 240 page volume features seven data tables and over 700 photos and illustrations.
