MiGMan's Combat Diary Have a weekend with nothing to do? Off you go then, on a 2 day flight without landing!
These screenshots were taken in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002 near RAF Mildenhall, UK.
Pilot's notes Dogged by controversy and funding problems during its design phase in the latter years of WW2, as well as performance issues during its 10 years in service, the B-36 remains a true wonder of the aeronautical age.

Powered by 6 28-cyl radials (and later 4 turbojets as well), the B-36 flew high and slow. It was not uncommon to stay aloft for 2 days without refuelling. The last B-36 was retired in 1958 when the type was replaced by the B-52.
