Some further background info: the B-36J was built by Convair and known as the Peacemaker. This one is named the "City of Fort Worth." It was delivered to the USAF in 1954, but by 1959 it was transferred to the USAF Museum in Fort Worth, TX and put on static display. In 1992, it was moved to a Lockheed-Martin facility in Fort Worth for restoration, then loan transferred to the Pima Air and Space Museum in Tucson, AZ in 2005. (Serial Number: 52-2827) Its current markings are of the 95th Bomb Wing, Biggs AFB, El Paso, Texas. "The B-36 is the largest and the last piston engine powered bomber produced by the United States." (Quote from the "The Pima Air & Space Museum" collection book, copyright 2008, The Arizona Aerospace Foundation.)

For anyone who is interested, here is some additional info from Wikipedia:

"The Convair B-36 "Peacemaker" was a strategic bomber built by Convair and operated solely by the United States Air Force (USAF) from 1949 to 1959. The B-36 is the largest mass-produced piston-engined aircraft ever built. It had the longest wingspan of any combat aircraft ever built, at 230 ft (70.1 m). The B-36 was the first bomber capable of delivering any of the nuclear weapons in the U.S. arsenal from inside its four bomb bays without aircraft modifications. With a range of 10,000 mi (16,000 km) and a maximum payload of 87,200 lb (39,600 kg), the B-36 was capable of intercontinental flight without refuelling.

Entering service in 1948, the B-36 was the primary nuclear weapons delivery vehicle of the Strategic Air Command (SAC) until it was replaced by the jet-powered Boeing B-52 Stratofortress beginning in 1955. All but five examples were scrapped."

And it is a little hard to tell from this picture, but it has ten (10) engines, i.e. six piston (pusher) prop engines and four jet engines. Pretty unusual and pretty impressive.

Undisturbed air-flow over the entire wing, great aeronautical engineering. But, the engines, P&W R4360 28 cylinder in 4 rows, largest cu in displacement aviation engine ever, was actually built to face forward, so it had heating issues. Dedicated crew member just to fiddle with the engines! Saw the prop in a museum, its unbelievable the size of that sucker. Must weigh a ton~!
