I myself have not seen them... They are in the belly of the B36..... I friend was in there last week and told me about them..... I did find it kind of strange, but with this collection you never know..... By the way the F-86 could be a E or F instead of a A..... It is hard for me to tell without looking at the ID..... Sorry to ruin the crated P-47 in the B-36, it is not there.....

If I had all of the money in the world, I'd own a B-36 project and give Tom Reilly about half of my money to make it fly...

It was disassembled the hard way by the USAF. What's there is fairly beat up, and I'm sure there are some very important pieces missing.

It isn't like you can easily find six R4360's and props configured for the -36.

Would love to create some space in the shop for what's left of the XBT-12. :heart:


Mrs. K just reminded me we have to get kids #4 & #5 through college yet.


Killjoy. :lol:

Don’t waste your breath talking about restoring the B-36 to flight or whatever. Really dumb thought. I got to tour the one in Nebraska as the owner of the Falcon I fly had a family member that was a crew chief on one. The tour was given by a former B-36 pilot. It’s an outrageous design that had lots of magnesium in it’s construction, many miles of wiring and hydraulics and was quite difficult to land, especially in a tailwind. It would nice on display or better yet, someone buy it and use in their hangar for an office and sleeping quarters.
The cockpit is small and cozy but the other areas have more room. The bomb bays are massive.

Thank you, Mr. Positivity!
