| We are now in the
process of preparing full-color posters honoring SAC's bomb wings.
There are to be four of them, arranged by aircraft. Each poster will
show a photo of the airplane(s) and give a brief operational history.
The bulk of the poster is the patches worn by the wings during the time
period. Under each will be a caption citing the unit's most
frequently used name (Bomb Wing, Strategic Wing, etc.), its bases, the
years it flew the aircraft and its flying squadrons. The titles are:
(1) B-29/50 and B-36, (2) B-47, (3) B-52 constituted wings, and (4) other
aircraft - includes the B-58, the FB-111 and the B-1. Although the
B-2 Stealth Bomber came into use after SAC's demise, it will be included
in this poster.
If we are able to recover our cost on these, then
other titles will follow. They may include the Missile units, the
Air Refueling Wings, Strategic Wings, Strategic Command and Air Combat Command.
The first poster - that for the B-52 Superfortress will be going
to the printer soon. Below, we've shown a screen shot from our design
program. The gray lines around elements will not be on the printed
poster. If you want to insure that you get copy, then
Several friends are helping me to
assemble the necessary images for the other posters. You can check out the status of each
poster by clicking on the link at the top of this page.
