OK, you guys are confusing me. B47's didn't have electronic to operated the rear weapons. And the original 52's didn't either. It wasn't until the 80's or so that the AF got rid of the enlisted guy sittin in the back and turned the tail all electronic.Originally posted by hvacker
I was in SAC on B47's. I remember a story where a tech during preflights liked to turn on the 20mm canons in the tail and follow the guards around with them. That can get spooky because a person can hear the drive motors as the guns move. And ya the tdy's were great. GB, Spain, Labrador
Am I right or what?
