Boeing B-47E Stratojet: Ride ‘Em Santa.

The gate guard of former Plattsburgh AFB, New York in festive mood. Not the average Stratojet here. “Pride of the Adirondacks” and its crew won top honors among all SAC B-47 in Sept 1965 SAC’s 14th Bombing and Navigation competition (Fairchild AFB, Washington). The so-called “World’s Best B-47” didn’t have too much time to enjoy its status; B-47’s phased out process was in full swing. “Pride of the Adirondacks” took its guard duties in February 1966 …..almost 50 years ago.

Feliz Navidad / Merry Xmas, my friends.
