Merry Christmas, Folks.

This has got to be Santa's "sled" to be able to deliver all of those presents on time. :d:cool:

Still the baddest aircraft on the planet.

I guarded those things for almost 4 years back in the day. Night take offs were standard and also tres awesome. They only gave them enough fuel to get off the ground and out to sea... they leaked like sieves until the skin heated up and expanded to seal the tanks... which were part of the fuselage and wings.

ETA:

Here is a good video if you have time to watch it.
