Follow-up To My Memorial Day Posts

Here's a World War II-era B-17 bomber with a Cold War-era B-52. The 17's, known as Flying Fortresses, entered service in the 1940's, while the 52's, known as Stratofortresses, entered service in the 50-s and are still flying today.

It's hard to believe that those two bombers are so close in time, yet so far apart in all capabilities. Technological progress is a wonderful thing.
