She's a thing of beauty. Great shots.

They even managed to stuff one of these monsters into the Corsair (F2G Super Corsair).

It also powers a couple of Sea Fury's. Furias, which is still at the Sander's shop being built back up to race at Reno, and Dreadnought.

Sweet shots. Awesome engine. If I remember right, the B-36 had service tunnels in the wings so the engines could be accessed in flight if necessary. I can't imagine that happening at 45,000 feet though. It was also the biggest bomber ever made and the first to have intercontinental range.

Jon.

Thanks for all the comments guys. Those are the only images I have of that particular engine, but they came out so well and it is so interesting, that I am for sure going to get some more the next time I am up at Travis. The C-124 also had service tunnels in the wings to add oil in flight. When I was a young loadmaster some of the old head flight engineers told stories of having to crawl into the wings halfway between Hawaii and California to fill em with oil so they didnt run dry!

I am not sure what type of plane this particular model came from but I can sure ask the next time I am up there. I go about once a month. Having the 5Dm2 is great for inside no flash shots in a badly lit museum. I would hesitate to use 1600 ISO on my 40D and not even think of 3200, but not anymore!
