Quote from: Chrysler300
The bomber posted is a B-29 Super Fortress.   The B-47 was a short lived jet bomber.  A movie was made with Mr. Jimmy Steward about SAC and at the time the 47 was used because it was the hot new item.
 
There's a bunch of '29s in that picture, but all the way on the right is a lone B-47; that's what I was refrencing.
 
The 47's carreer as America's first swept-wing jet bomber was longer than many other bombers, including the B-36, B-49, B-50, and the B-58.  It was a good plane at the right time.  The longevity if the B-52 can be traced to two historical events: the crashing of the XB-70 and the shooting down of Francis Gary Powers.
 
Even so, it remains a great weapons platform to this day - amazing!

Well I'll be.  Shazam!  I didn't notice the scroll on the bottom of the photo and low and behold when I did move to the right I saw the 47.

Yes, it's a Chrysler...

I know what that is, although I;ve never seen a picture of one!  It's the five-bank motor Chrysler built in WWII to power tanks - many Shermans had this motor.
 
The Tankers didn't care for it much; it did not have the reliability of the Wright motor, but it didn't burn as easy either!

Biggest.Siren.Ever


A glimpse back at simpler times, when everything could be solved with huge sirens in every city - "..a
Chrysler Air Raid Siren, the most powerful siren in the world. It's the
size of a car, measuring near 12-feet in length and standing more than
6-feet tall. It also weighs twice as much as today's typical car. This
gigantic siren is powered by an 180-HP Chrysler Industrial V-8 HEMI
gasoline engine. The super-duty engine directly drives a three-stage
compressor that blows 2,610 cubic feet of air a minute, at nearly 7
PSI, into a giant siren rotor."
