QuoteI remember back in the day, there was a link to a site with an alternate history of the B-49.
QuoteSmashing model old chap! I heard that XB-49 was rejected as a bomber cos it had no stability in any axis. Despite the addition of 'vertical flow separators' i.e. fins it simply wouldn't stay still long enough to accurately hit a target. Not really a concern with nuclear payloads but for conventional loads it was like trying to bomb from a helicopter!
