From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia: On 25 August 1950, Convair issued a formal proposal for a swept-winged version of the B-36 with all-jet propulsion. The United States Air Force was sufficiently interested that on 15 March 1951, the USAF authorized Convair to convert two B-36Fs (49-2676 and 49-2684) as B-36Gs. Since the aircraft was so radically different from the existing B-36, the designation was soon changed to YB-60.
Classic scenes from that classic film, here we have an ex-Delta CV-880 taxiing for the cameras for a movie. Listen to those GE CJ-805s! Judging by all the interior shots, this appears to have been filmed on board the genuine aircraft. Delta, along with TWA, retired their Convair Jets in 1974.
