I was an instrument repairman with the 55th Strategic Reconnaissance Wing, Forbes AFB, Topeka KS during the early to mid 60s. We had mostly RB47 H models but we had a few of the EB47Es too. We had operating locations in Japan, England , Turkey, and Alaska. From these locations we flew recon missions near enemy airspace. Of course our main enemy at that time was the Soviet Union. One of our planes was shot down and the story is documented in a book with the deceiving title;The Little Toy Dog. I was lucky. I spent 179 day TDYs in Japan twice and England once. Some of my fellow airmen went to Turkey and Alaska. You can imagine the grief I got from them but that was just the way the cookie crumbled..

I was an assistant crew chief on B47 aircraft at McDill AFB, FL. in 1962. The 376BW transfered to Lockbourne AFB, OH. where we had the EB47 PACCS aircraft. I was became a crew chief and was a crewchief until they were deactivated.

The Cottontail Squadron. Remember Bill Sinn my AC real well.
We did a good job during the Cuban Missile Crisis - 1200 B-47s scattered everywhere ready to go. That was a close one. JFK saved the world with his diplomacy and SAC crews.

I remember a B47 at Eglin AFB in the 1959 era that had a sonar antenna and a torpedo rack between the fuselage and inboard engines on each side. At the time the sonar was removed and the torpedo racks where covered over with fiberglass(?). Does anyone remember the tail number of this particular aircraft? I can remember a Navy pilot that come over once a month to fly the plane to keep his flight time up to date. But for the life of me I cannot remember the tail number!
