US Bomber Projects #20 will be a “special” covering the Boeing XB-59. This will bring together and update the Model 484 and 701 diagrams from prior issues and will add a bunch more, fleshing out not only the development of the B-59 configuration but also showing some of the designs that followed it.

    Prometheus, they say, brought God’s fire down to man
    And we’ve caught it, tamed it, trained it since our history began
    Now we’re going back to Heaven just to look Him in the eye
    And there’s a thunder ‘cross the land and a fire in the sky

    LBJ was as mobbed-up as they come, but unlike Harry Truman he gave the gift of forever Big Government to his organized crime handlers. Until that time the mob bosses had to content themselves with earnings from vice. Johnson gave them the keys to Fort Knox via the welfare programs and Medicare.
