B-36 Flying Aircraft Carrier.


It's an huge plane, much larger than the more famous B-52 (which is freaking enormous). When I used to live in Nebraska, I'd go and visit the example they had at The Strategic Air Command Museum from time to time. The one they had on display had it's bomb bay doors open and you could climb inside where the H-Bombs used to be. To say it was spacious is something of an understatement. You could park your car in there. Several cars really. Anyway, the idea here was to provide long range fighter cover on bombing missions over the Soviet Union.
