I was a EB-47 crew chief at Lockbourne AFB, Oh in the 376 BW.

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!

My Dad was the navigator on the last B-47 flown (ceremonially, after the wing had left) out of McCoy AFB in '61 or '62. If anyone knows how I might track down the serial number, see if it's still around somewhere, I'd appreciate the help. (My Dad's service records were all destroyed in a fire at the National Records Center in the '70s.)

I was stationed at Lockbourne AFB in 1957 and worked on the RB-47's. I attended a highly classified radar school in Baltimore, MD. This radar was directly involved with Eisenhower's Open Sky policy. It was the first side look radar. The APQ-56.

I was a Raven 2 on the EB-47 at Lockborne from 1961 to 1964. I was on Ben Bailey's crew E-77V. This was one of
the most enjoyable assignments of my Air Force career.

I was stationed at McCoy AFB from late 1958 to 1960 where we had the B-47. What a great plane and if I remember right, the bulge under the nose is the radar. I was a weapons mechanic on the B-47 and we dealt with the tail guns, bomb racks and the weapons systems but if I remember right the radar guys would be working under the nose with the black cover folded down and the small radar dish there.....Yea I have passed that B-47 along I-95 in Georgia and often wondered if I worked on that particular plane, don't remember any tail numbers from way back then. One unique thing about the B-47 was the navigator set in the nose of the plane and his ejection seat would eject him down under the plane and the pilot and co-polit would eject up over the plane.

I have a question. isn't there a EB-47 sitting right along I 95 in Georgia? I think it is at a small museum for 8th air force or something. if I remember correctly it is arouns mile post 100 or so. I don't think it is a basic bomber as it has some type od fairing or bulge under the nose area.
