    All bombers are “fixed-wing bombers,” unless you’re talking about a helicopter. This plane is more properly referred to as a “flying wing.” In fact, it’s a Northrup YB-49, a revision to Jack Northrup’s original flying wing bomber design, the YB-35. It’s a direct forerunner of the B-2 Spirit bomber.

    True. As opposed to rotary wing…

    Northrup got the contract for the YB-49 to be Air Force’s #1 bomber. Then they reniged because of pressure from Texas politicians and where told they could not have the contract unless they merged with Chance-Vought of Ft. Worth. John Northrup refused. He knew Chance-Vought was a scum-bag plane maker. The U.S. bought ALL the B-49s, blew them up and burned the blueprints. There is not even one in the Smithsonian. The Air Force bought the B-36 from Chance-Vought. And the taxpayers paid for a flying piece of shit.
