RB-50 SuperfortressItem Number: 1765
RB-50 Superfortress Boeing airplane model. Several RB-50Bs were modified at Boeing-Wichita with SHORAN navigation radar for special missions. These planes were redesignated RB-50F. The SHORAN radar navigation system was used to conduct mapping, charting, and geodetic surveys. However, it was found in practice that the SHORAN system interfered with the RB-50F's defensive armament, so the SHORAN radar and its associated equipment were housed in removable kits.
