If you like that picture -- me too! -- you'll love the film "Strategic Air Command." It's about a bomber wing converting from B-36s to B-47s. Lots of real-life footage of the aircraft.

I'm amazed by the amount of badass if useless hardware that was designed to do harm in the 50s. Some of these ideas were simply mind blowing. As for my favourites, I pick the 'needle' as I call it or The Widow Maker: the F-104, which was also tested with various forms of assisted take off (including strapping a huge rocket to the bottom), could carry nuclear weapons and actually worked.

I imagine the russians probably had their versions as well - only with 6X as many rockets and tank treads so that it could land on water...somehow.

#5, Tank treads didn't help the amphibious tanks float on D-Day, did they?

#9, Who doesn't?
The only thing I don't quite understand is how the fuck did these things turn. And an aeroplane (of sorts) I imagine it turns by tilting to the side, but if you tap the water at those speeds, stuff tends to get ripped apart. Also, what if the sea was rough?

#10, If the sea is rough, you drink more vodka and give it more throttle.

Everything is better with science and nuclear power! The distinct sci-fi 50s feel of Fallout games is what makes them so captivating for me. If anyone did not play any of the Fallout games: the alternate US gets stuck in the 50s (but with Science! and Nuclear Power!) for 200 years until a nuclear holocaust comes.
