You have to have gray hair (if you have any left) to remember the B-36 beasts!

My grandfather worked at "The Bomber Plant" during and after the war, father retired from GD. Always heard stories about the B36 but my experience was with the B-52, F111 and F-16's

Living out by Benbrook lake, those B52 pilots would turn over the lake and at night would light up our house like it was mid day.

If it weren't for those old Bombers and WW2, many of us in the west FW area would not be here today. That B36 pilot sure is low in that video clip. I'm sure he shuck many a house and scared the crap out of a few people.

BTW... used to date many of those officers daughters at Carswell. They were a little on the wild side away from daddy.

My dad was there in 1945 before we went to Roswell. Don't remember much except the lake. Lived across street from it.

Btw: haven't had hair in a long time except where it's not wanted (nose ears etc)

I was born at Carswell AFB but of course don't remember it at all. I did work on NAS JRB Fort Worth from 2003-2009 however

My husband and I still go out to "JRB" Carswell. He gets his hair cut and I shop in BX and Commissary.
