KB-29

Here are some pictures of KB-29s and crew that were assigned TDY to the United Kingdom in the fall of 1949. The full story is unclear, but it appears that these KB-29s were fitted with British refueling equipment and then flown north for cold weather trials. Expert comments welcomed in the comment section below. All photos courtesy Paul Lee.
