and SR-71 Strategic Reconnaissance
This poster shows all nine of
the USAF strategic bombers. All but the B-2 were flown by the
Strategic Air Command. Although the Cold War has long been over and
SAC disbanded, three of these aircraft (the B-1, B-2 and B-52) are
still protecting us from our enemies. SACís mission included
strategic reconnaissance, and many bombers were modified to perform
it. The famous SR-71 Blackbird was built for that purpose and
was flown by SAC, so it is included.
|Aircraft are usually
shown in profile, as the images are relatively easy to prepare and
are more compact. This permits more to be shown in limited space.
The P-38 Lighting had twin booms, and the B-47 Stratojet
introduced swept back wings and nacelle hung engines, the design
used by almost all future airliners. These important body and wing
designs cannot be shown in profile views.
To overcome this,
Feenixx introduces an exciting new approach to aircraft
presentation. Each military aircraft title focuses on a specific
subject, and shows all of the appropriate aircraft. They are
presented in perspective, all from the same low angle using the same
directional lighting. They are also sized to the same scale. When
superimposed over a common sky background, it creates the illusion
that they are flying overhead in formation. This makes it very easy
to visually compare their size and design.
These posters also contain a highly detailed chart citing the
specifications and performance characteristics of each aircraft,
making them easy to compare.
