Re: 'INTO THE WILD, BLUE YONDER......'
I remember the B-36 well and that distinctive engine sound that lingered long after the sound of either the B-17s or the B-29s passed over.
The 36s would occasionally come into Westover Field outside of Springfield, Massachusetts and the glide path, depending on the wind direction, would bring them directly over our house, some landing and some taking off. I always thought that the Gods were speaking upon hearing their sound.
I have a copy of the full length video of "Strategic Air Command", as it is one of my favorites. I have always been into airplanes, expecially WWII, Korea eras of the 40s, 50s and 60s.
Thanks for posting this reminder. Brings back some fond memories.
