Quote from: PR19_Kit on July 01, 2019, 04:29:09 AMIn the RW Boeing started on a project to give the B-47 with a bit more poke by swapping the six 5.200 lb thrust J-47 engines for four Allison J-71s, each rated at 10000 lbs each. Sadly the J-71 turned out to be a lemon and the new version of the B-47, to be called the B-56, never got built.But suppose Boeing had thought a tad laterally, and noticed that the B-52, which they were building at the same time, was a very BIG aeroplane which had eight 10000 lb thrust J-57s. With some sideways thinking they could have shortened a B-52 a bit, halved the number of engines, trimmed the wing span ( ) and come up with a much more plausible B-56, and it would have been cheaper too.I give you the Boeing B-56 Stratocastle.....
