John Young. 

The B-47 became the first modern bomber to fill the ranks of General  Curtis Lemay's new Strategic Air Command. With long range, high altitude capabilities, the "Stratojet" became the backbone of SAC in the early 1950's. As fast as many early jet fighters, with sophisticated defenses and operational altitudes of up to 40,000 feet, the B-47 was a strong deterrent. 29"x 22 ½" print is signed and numbered by the artist and B-47 test pilot A.M. "Tex" Johnston.  .....#0007236 $125.00

I am Farrel A Paulk , i was a aircraft electrician on the

B-47 from 1951 to 1955. We received the first 3 planes at McDill AFB. and had 3 bomb wings by 1955. We had a All planes general group that inspected the plane before each flight . If there was even a rivet loose they took care of it. being a electron on the B-47. I was all over the plane and would have noticed any cracks in the wings. I don't know where this story came from but i say it is entirely untrue. I am extremely proud of my involvement with the B-47 and don't appreciate a lie like this about our plane.  My e mail is fpaulk@alltel.net. If any one wants to talk with me I say bring it on Thanks Farrel

Dear Farrel,

Thank you very much for your comments.  I don't know when these planes went out of service.  It was my boss that told me about the cracks.  He was a B-29 pilot, then a B-47 pilot.  He told me that this was a top secret since the B-29's and B-36's were taken out of service and the B-52's were not in service yet. He said that the planes were limited to a 1/4 G turn because of the size of the cracks.  On his last flight, the flight surgeon grounded him because of the flu.  His plane took off and a wing fell off and killed everyone in the plane.  He said that, that was the last time he flew and he asked to get out of the Air Force because of this.  He feels that he should have been on that plane himself.   C. Jeff Dyrek, Webmaster

1998

Here's some information that was previously above top secret about the B-47.  When the B-29's and B-36's were decommissioned we had the all new B-47 Stratojet which could out fly anything in the sky. 

This large bomber, with a jet fighter canopy was our main Strategic Air Command bomber and our first line of air defense.  We didn't have any other aircraft with the capabilities that were needed to take this role in defense of our country, that's why what I'm going to tell you was above top secret. 

My supervisor was a former B-47 pilot.  He flew all of the previous bombers and was given the new job of being a B-47 Pilot.  One of the duties of pilot was to inspect the airplane prior to flight, Preflight.  One tools that he had to use was a ruler, yes, a 12 inch ruler, this was the secret!  He had to measure the crack in the wings before every flight.  The cracks were the secret that we couldn't let out.  The design was flawed and all of the wings of the B47 had cracks.  If the crack exceeded 12 inches, the plane was unfit to fly.  If it was under 12 inches, the plane could be flown but was limited to a 1/4 G maneuver.  We couldn't let the enemy know that our first line of SAC defense had cracked wings.
