B-47E Stratojet
National Museum Of Nuclear Science & History
Albuquerque, NM


B-47

B-47E Stratojet bomber on display at the US Air Force Museum in Dayton, Ohio. This airplane was in the modern flight gallery. When the new 3rd hangar opened, this B-47 was moved off display, and a new B-47 (which was formerly on display at the now closed Smoky Hill AFB in Salina, KS) was put on display.

This Stratojet was planned to be moved to the MAPS Air Museum at the Akron/Canton Airport in the 2005 time frame. While I have never been to the MAPS Air Museum, they have a very nice small but growing collection of aircraft, and a museum building able to house many of the smaller aircraft. But as of 2006, that move has been canceled, and the Stratojet is no longer on display and is in long term storage on the grounds of Wright-Patterson AFB in Dayton.

Update—As of July, 2012, this aircraft is in the process of being moved to Kirtland Air Force Base in Albuquerque, New Mexico, for future display at the National Museum Of Nuclear Science & History.

Update—As of 2014, this aircraft is now on display at the new National Museum Of Nuclear Science & History in Albuquerque. The museum is open to the general public and does not require any special base passes for visitors.
