Martin Coddington...Your comment on the sound. In my opinion, you are right on. I'm 80 now but as a kid, the two things I remember most about the B-36 was the pushers and the SOUND. Of all planes, I've ever heard it was one sound you'd never forget. Good comment on your part.

Can someone identify this plane?

Can anyone ID the orange a/c hiding the starboard pair of J-47’s ?

Hello Jack, no the shot is from the ground. Planes are comming up from the east and banking away first to the right and directly after this to the left of the runway at Leeuwarden airbase The Netherlands.

Actually this was not photoshopped. This was an actual flight formation from an airshow I attended.

Hallo Thorsten,
ich habe selbst schon viele spektakuläre Momente eingefangen, die gelegentlich für Diskussionen sorgten.
Über lange Brennweite lassen sich unglaubliche Sachen einfangen.
Kannst Du was zu ISO, Blende und Verschlusszeit zu dem Foto sagen. Brennweite war gewiss 400mm. Ich würde auf hohe ISO tippen, um die Verschlusszeit runter zu bekommen. Das würde dann einige Bildeffekte durch Entrauschen erklären.....naja...die Knippserei soll Spass machen, keinen Stress verursachen :-)
Ich bin immer ziemlich neugierug und auch fair genug, eigene Fehleinschätzung zu korrigieren. MAn lernt nie aus, seine Sinne zu eichen :-)
Gruss Sven.

Who's betting a gust of wind will send this into someones head, or crash into a car? either way a bad idea and it will never really work out.

Super shot, Mark! I guess to be totally accurate, we should call this an MD-10 rather than a DC-10. I'm a retired FedEx pilot and am pretty sure I have this tail in my logbook :-). I can't remember the exact date, but we transitioned our DC-10 fleet to MD-10S quite awhile ago. No matter what you call it, it is a beautiful machine!

definitely a photo I have been waiting for. Glad I got to go and see them fly! 5*.

My late father-in-law flew these out of Walker Air Force Base in Arizona. He talked for hours about these planes. He was there when Jimmy Stewart visited the base and rode with them for a check-out ride. He said it would out-turn a jet fighter. Long missions were the norm (13 hours) and they once had to do one without autopilot!
Check out "6 turning and 4 burning". It's a short film about B-36's out of Walker.

Ospreys are just to provide air cover for the VH-60. Look at it's rear door (aka gunner door).

BTW, this is the VH-60

The public can enjoy the experience of boarding an RB-36 (Recon version) twice a year at Castle (AFB) Air Museum in CA (https://www.castleairmuseum.org). They have open cockpit days on Memorial and Labor Days, and you can climb into the forward compartments (Navigator/Radar, Radio room, Flight deck). It's pretty special. Highly recommended. Normal crew numbered 13, but the RB-36 had 2x that to support a large photo studio compartment behind the radio room in place of the forward bomb bay.

With the parallel runway 16R-34L closed, everything arriving and departing came right by me. It was sunny but I wasn't concerned about being sunburned; any closer and I'd have been "blastburned." (lol)

Undisturbed air-flow over the entire wing, great aeronautical engineering. But, the engines, P&W R4360 28 cylinder in 4 rows, largest cu in displacement aviation engine ever, was actually built to face forward, so it had heating issues. Dedicated crew member just to fiddle with the engines! Saw the prop in a museum, its unbelievable the size of that sucker. Must weigh a ton~!

Having grown up in Wichita, I saw many great planes overhead - one B-29 going over and once a B-36. We saw B-47s and B-52s fresh out of the factory with hand painted numbers on their tails taking maiden test flights.

HI Frank, at the far right of the image you can just make out the puff of smoke from the initial touchdown, also the wheels closest to us in this shot don't have their usual extreme angle while they hang under the plane suggesting they've touched down previously. It seems the pilot pulled back on the yoke to keep the nose wheel up and actually got airborne again. Thanks for the comment!

>I can think of Beechcraft Starship and Piaggio Avanti<

...and the aft engine of the Cessna 336 Skymaster.

The B-36 was a graceful thing to see in the sky, but yes, they mostly flew at night. There were many unusual things about this aircraft but to me the most unusual was it's sound. It is difficult to explain but once you heard one, you never forgot it.

Sorry, Mark. I must have thought I was replying to Uwe. In German, "bitte" literally means "please," but it is also used to say "you're welcome."
