Surviving B-36 Peacemaker Bombers

Only four complete Convair B-36 Peacemaker air frames have survived of the 384 that were built. We have had the good fortune of viewing and photographing three of the four in a short period of time, from October 2011 - October 2012.

The B-36 survivors are listed below ... click the links for additional information and photographs of the airplane at each facility.
