RB-36D

I don’t know why, but I thought the last remaining example of a B-36 was at the Air Force Museum at Wright Pat. Turns out, the museum at Caste AFB has one, and reader LT Rusty was very kind enough to grab a whole bunch of pictures for us. Enjoy. He’s got some similar selections of other planes, and I’ll hit him up for them at a later date.  Also, notice the Rascal missile under the wing.

  1. There was a B-36 for the longest time outside the gate of the General Dynamics /Lockheed Martin plant in Fort Worth, where they were made (there was also a B-58 displayed there as well). In the late 80’s it was moved to be restored and placed in a museum that was to be built near Alliance Airport (owned in part by the Perot group) north of Fort Worth. The musuem was never built and the B-36 now in pieces was moved to the PIMA Museum at Tucson, AZ.

  2. CrazyHorse I have an old friend whos Dad worked in the Fort Worth plant. He swears as a child that the B-36 at least was wide open for solo self-touring and many parts of it just walked away.
