Quote from: Luis R. Ramos on May 30, 2014, 12:54:29 PMDr Strangelove is not a movie about SAC. It is a satire, a farce. Funny none the less, but not my idea of SAC. My idea of SAC? A Gathering of Eagles and Strategic Air Command.
Quote from: AirAux on June 02, 2014, 04:32:18 PMJimmy Stewart was my Dad's Squadron Commander while he was in the 453rd Bomb Group, 733rd Bomb Squadron in England out of Ol' Birmingham near Norwich. Dad loved him and said Jimmy went with them on all of the hard missions. He would have followed him into hell. B-24's, around January 1944 through June 1944. They flew two 6 hour missions on D-Day. The greatest generation. God, I miss Dad.

Quote from: Nikos on June 17, 2014, 10:54:41 PMDid the SAC tanker crews have ejection seats, or if the engine flamed out, did they ride the tanker down like a glider?

We had parachutes if we wished to attempt a manual bailout.And the 135 has the glide ratio of a brick.
