As seen here in the USAF Museum, the B-36 strategic bomber is simply HUGE! It had 10 engines (6 propeller & 4 jet) and the longest combat aircraft wingspan, at 230 ft (70.1 m). With a range of 10,000 mi (16,000 km) and a maximum payload of 87,200 lb (39,600 kg), it was capable of intercontinental flight without refueling.
