It served as the mainstay of Strategic Air Command in the 1950s into the mid 1960s.

The B-47 was an outgrowth of WWII research and development efforts, and the prototype aircraft first flew in December of 1947. The unique six-jet design featured twin engine pods on the wing near the fuselage, and one outboard. It also incorporated an elegant bicycle-type landing gear with two-wheel struts on the forward and aft fuselage and outrigger wheels. In 1956, over 1300 B-47s and 250 RB-47s were on alert. It was the high water mark for the aircraft, which was fully supplanted by the B-52 by 1967. This B-47 pilots flight operating handbook was originally produced by the USAF.

It has been slightly reformatted but is reproduced here in its entirety. It provides a fascinating view inside the cockpit of one of historys great planes.
