In WW2, the B-29 was a technological marvel. I am bringing these facts from my old memory, but they probably came from James Bradley’s great book, Flyboys. To develop and produce 4,000 B-29s, the government spent as much money as the Manhattan Project.
We learned about the jet stream from the B-29. Even with the Norden bombsight at high altitudes, bombardiers were missing the targets by a wide margin.

Courtesy of GE06, who – despite being one of them armor type plinkees – always brings me the best pr0n. I’m pretty much betting that the right rudder is about on the stops right there.
God, that’s beautiful.
