The plane is a B47. The bulge on the bottom of the plane is a RADAR dome
In Response To: Downward ejection seat *Pic* ()

Originally the B47 navigator didn't have an ejection set. Just the pilots. The B52 Nav and RADAR Nav seats are downward ejection. The downward ejection limits are 150' AGL and 120KTS level flight. Higher altitude is needed if the A/C is descending. I never wanted the pilots to say Oh oh on take off roll.
