Personnel and equipment required to keep B-36 Flying

Personnel and equipment required to get and keep a B-36 airplane in the air. Reading from front to back, left to right, the personnel represent: the wing commander; the ground and squadron commanders; administrative personnel; a cook representing personnel that feed the men and prepare the food for the missions; the line chief whose responsibility it is to see that all the planes in his squadron are properly maintained; the crew chief and his crew of fifteen men; who are responsible for the maintenance on this particular aircraft; the men who fly the plane; the gasoline and oil trucks required to keep the bomber fully loaded with fuel, 21,116 gallons of gasoline and 1,200 gallons of oil; an example of a small bomb load that is usually taken on a practice mission; an ambulance that is on hand in the event of an accident; hospital personnel; a fire truck that is on hand when the plane starts its engines or making an emergency landing; and a load of oxygen bottles. (The B-36 is pressurized, however, in the event of an emergency when the plane is at a high altitude, oxygen may be used.) Others not shown in this photograph that help, are the control tower operator that clears the plane for its taxiing, takeoffs and landings; the radar and radio maintenance personnel; and the air police.

Boeiing B-15 arrives in Panama

World's second largest land-plane goes to Caribbean. The B-15, huge experimental bomber built several years before the B-19, arrives in Panama for uses not disclosed by Air Force Headquarters. This plane is exceeded in size among American Aircraft only by the B-19 and the "Mars", the latter being the giant flying boat designed by Glenn Martin Company. A six-man crew flew the big ship from a base in the States to her new home in the tropics, where her arrival was the occasion of much public speculation, with most people believing her to be the more famous B-19. (49509 A.C.)
