‘City of Fort Worth’ debuts at Pima

From the Star Telegram:

Star-Telegram.comThe final B-36 Peacemaker off the assembly line in west Fort Worth hadn’t been seen in public since an overland trip from Fort Worth to Tucson, Ariz., in 2005.

Now the 10-engine, nuclear-capable Cold War bomber has been rolled out at the Pima Air & Space Museum after exhaustive restoration.

Nice picture of the refurbished aircraft in the article.

It was embarrassing Fort Worth couldn’t take care of its namesake, but it’s terrific the aircraft historians at the Pima Museum have given her the home she needed.
