I've heard stories about those things. None of them good.

Here's a softball for some of you.

What does JOAP stand for, and what is its purpose?

That was a gimme. JOint Analysis Program. A joint program run by the Air Force to analyse aircraft oil samples for metal particles indicating wear or component failure. One of my collateral duties was to send oil samples pulled during phase inspections to them and get the results.

My wife used to test JOAP samples as an intern during college.

Looks like the Stratojet that was used for Avro Arrow engine development

Yes. Only B-47 operated by a country other than the US.

Here is another pic of the engine install. When returned to the US this B-47 was scrapped. Rumor is because the Orenda bent the frame.

Time to get new glasses I think.I didn't even notice the extra engine on the back and was thinking 'Surely it's just an ordinary B47?'

Rough field landing gear on a B-36. That always made new laugh.
