I was looking on some site about an abandoned aircraft carrier designed to carry bomber planes, it was cancelled for a force of Convair B-36 Bombers.
I do admit the B-36 was a piece of aircraft engineering, it looked like somthing from a 1940s comic strip. I guess it was also that time when aircraft
companies were trying to build the biggest planes, Howard Hughes built the biggest one of all. It was an amazing plane but at the end of the day it
was not worth it(Only 10 years of service and never even seen action!).
Well lets get back to the carrier then, If this carrier was completed it would have served around the world and would have been used in Vietnam,
Panama and Gulf War One(GW1),
It would have served at least up to the mid 1990s and i suppose a few more of this type of carrier would have been built.
