X-Plane 9 Boeing R/WB-50 Superfortress v9.50. This is the plane the author's father started his Air Force flying career with, in 1955. The RB-50 photo recon and WB-50 weather recon aircraft were developed from the WWII B-29 Superfortress. Jacques Brault gave permission to adapt his v8.6 B-29 panel photo for this model update. The exhaust flames were a 'gift" from Anthony Booher. By David Austin.
