In the Sunday story on the lost hydrogen bomb, Guy Raz is introducing the B-47 bomber:
"It was called the B-47; it was really a revolutionary bomber at the time, a really beautiful plane. Here's how military historian, Doug Keeny, describes it:No comment needed.
'The B-47 was a sexy, elegant looking aircraft. It had swept wings, very stylish, rakish swept wings, it had a swept tail. These were all new innovations. It was a jet engined aircraft with pods, they were in pairs.' "
