The Air Force liked Boeings design and ordered two prototypes. The first one, designated the XB-47, rolled out of its Seattle hangar Sept. 12, 1947. It made, its maiden flight Dec. 17, 1947. The B-47 was classified as a medium bomber and was not intended for worldwide missions even though it could be refueled in flight. The B-47 proved very versatile and underwent many modifications. The earlier A models had a clear plexiglass bombardier nose and two. 50-cal. machine guns in the tail. The E-models were upscaled to two 20mm cannons, the clear nose was eliminated and an optical dome was installed for the horizontal periscope bombsight. By Rey Lopez
