XB-47 Stratojet (46-066) Returns to Edwards AFB

  • GivetoRestoreThe Flight Test Historical Foundation is happy to announce XB-47 Stratojet (46-066)  is back home at Edwards AFB!

An effort was started last year to disassemble, move and reassemble this aircraft from Rantoul, Illinois to the Air Force Flight Test Museum at Edwards AFB, California.

Thanks to the support of many and to a generous grant from the Boeing Corporation, we have been able to contract with Worldwide Aircraft Recovery to disassemble, transport and reassemble this treasured aircraft.

Contributions are still needed

We do still need contributions to prepare XB-47 (46-066) for display at the Air Force Flight Test Museum. Private funds must be used to support this effort; so again, your help is very much needed. With your help, we will achieve our goal of preserving this truly historic aircraft for future generations.

XB-47 Stratojet (46-066) is a featured aircraft in our new Give To Restore Campaign.
