  1. For planing purposis, the Destin West RV Resort is across the street from the Ramada Inn. If staying at the RV Resort, you are afforded access to the amenities of the Ramada. If, like me, you will be traveling in an RV, it looks perfect. I’m looking forward to it. On the Good Sam Site, look up The Destin West RV Resort in Fort Walton Beach. I would make reservations now, but , at my age I don’t buy green bananas, or magazine prescriptions. Domer

  2. I definitely want to attend this one. I was stationed at Eglin AFB after our wing was shut down in May ’64 and also flew JB-47s there.

    • David; Do join us in 2013 a Ft. Walton Beach. As soon as the applications and information is available it will be published on the following pages, Reunion Page and Ft Walton Reunion page.

  3. I was stationed at Forbes, 40th A&E Bomb/Nav 1962 -1964 I have missed your reunions and looking forward to this one.

  4. I work at the Air Force Armament Museum and I am in the process of repainting the RB47 aircraft here. My complete date should be around July of 2012. Hope to see you folks at the museum for a visit in 2014.

  5. I plan to attend the reunion in 2014 this will be my first time, I spent the first 17 years of my 30 year service time maintaining B47 and RB47 ‘s it’s about time I came to one .

  6. I am not a B-47 veteran but I am a great fan of this amazing aircraft. I grew-up as a SAC Brat in the ’60′s and remember sitting in the car with my dad at runways end watching Alert 5 Scrambles using full injection. Plane after plane pouring out black smoke crabbing a cross wind. I would love to attend just to sit a listen to you great bunch of guys. Do you have associate memberships? Would be very interested in speaking to anyone associated Nuke testing like Operation Castle; Operations Greenhouse,.Dominic, Blue Gill. LABS Maneuver training!!!! I would hope some ground crew could speak about the early integral RATO/JATO installations. Oh so many things to learn! I hope I you will allow me to attend.

    • Don; Go to the [membership] page and fill out an application. Our next reunion will be in Ft Walton Beach, FL on Oct 30 to Nov 02, 2014. We would like to have you on board. I am sure you will find many members willing to tell you about the B-47, how it flew, how it was to work on etc.

  7. Hello Jim Diamond, FYI: May I suggest that you review the Membership Section of this web site for several very recent comments dated during July 2013 that need your review/comments. I’m sure the authors of those comments would appreciate your commentary.
    Thanks,
    George Brewer
