USAF B-36 Peacemaker Bomber DVD

The Convair B-36 Peacemaker Bomber is a strategic bomber operated by the United States Air Force (USAF) from 1949 to 1959. The B36 bomber is the largest bomber ever built. Also, the B36 wingspan was the longest wingspan of any combat aircraft ever built, at 230 feet.

The B-36 was configured to have six radial propeller engines mounted in a pusher configuration. This was the B-36b bomber configuration, of which 73 were built.

Later, two B-36 jet engines were mounted on each wing for a total of 10 engines. This was the B-36d configuration, of which a total of 86 were either built or converted from B-36b aircraft. The ten engines led to the slogan "six turning and four burning".

The B36 bomber crew consisted of fifteen: pilot, copilot, radar operator/bombardier, navigator, flight engineer, two radiomen, three forward gunners, and five rear gunners.
