Boeing B-47B-50-BW Stratojet
MSN 450355/450409.  Transfers to MASDC from www.amarcexperience.com
2302 to MASDC Aug 31, 1960

2315 (MSN 450368) at Grissom Air Museum, Peru, Indiana.  Observed at Grissom 1996 wearing false serial 20271.
However, 51-2315 was in a major accident prior to 1968.  52-0271 was indeed at Bunker Hill
AFB (later Grissom AFB), and maybe this plane is actually the real 52-0271.  Anyone know more?
The plane now bears the markings 12135 and the sign says that the plane broke its back on a hard landing
at Bunker Hill AFB, which forced its retirement, so it may well be the real 51-2315.
