8th AF    SAC Manual 64-1

This manual mentions the RS-6 in its survival
equipment listing. A portion of the manual is shown. When I think of the B-47 and RB-47 --I have to remember
the Secret Russian 0verflights made by these aircraft.
Spooky and very daring missions required a great deal of planning and crew coordination. Most important of all were the navigation tasks.
