Convair B-36 Peacemaker

Convair B-36 Peacemaker - Convair, 1959, Multi Engined, Bomber, 1949, B 36 Peacemaker
Flag This WallpaperAdd to FavoritesEnlarge Wallpaper
Wallpaper Description:
The Convair B-36 "Peacemaker" was a strategic bomber built by Convair and operated solely by the United States Air Force (USAF) from 1949 to 1959.

The B-36 was the largest mass-produced piston engine aircraft ever made.

It had the longest wingspan of any combat aircraft ever built at 230 ft (70.1 m).

The B-36 was the first bomber capable of delivering any of the nuclear weapons in the U.S. arsenal from inside its four bomb bays without aircraft modifications.

With a range of 16,000 km (9,900 mi) and a maximum payload of 33,000 kg (73,000 lb), the B-36 was the world's first manned bomber with an unrefueled intercontinental range.

Until it was replaced by the jet powered Boeing B-52 Stratofortress, which first became operational in 1955, the B-36 was the primary nuclear weapons delivery vehicle of the Strategic Air Command (SAC), and the B-36 set the standard for range and payload for subsequent U.S. intercontinental bombers.
