# 6) Boeing B-47 Stratojet: United States

The BoeingB-47 Stratojet took its maiden flight in the year 1947 everyone was very excited about its first flight because it uses a special design also known as the swept wing technology which provided the plane an immeasurably fast speed with which it has the capability to outrun its worst enemy even on a jet plane. The researchers quote a very famous incident when it was being tested and was under research the jet pilot was sent to chase the B-47, in order to check and measure its speed, He radioed to the B-47’s civilian pilot, “I can’t keep up.” The B-47 had an ultimate record of speed at an average of 609.8 miles per hour. Within only a few years, the plane became the most important bomber for the Strategic Air Command and in the long run more than 2,000 B-47s were built, though without the range and payload of its successor, the B-52, the B-47 “held the line” as a nuclear deterrent bomber in the early years of the Cold War.
