Photographer's Remark

Used as a test bed at Wright-Patterson AFB under the designation JB-47E in the 1960s, this was the first USAF aircraft with a fly-by-wire control system. Added to the Museum in 1969 and displayed until 2003, latterly inside, when replaced by RB-47H 53-4299. Now stored outside the Museum's Restoration Hangar
