Douglas WB-66D Destroyer

Douglas WB-66D Destroyer


Tucson, Arizona (AZ), US
Begun as a development of the Navy A3D Skywarrior in 1952 and bearing a superficial resemblance to the Skywarrior, the B-66 is actually a very different aircraft. The Destroyer was eventually built in several versions; bomber, photographic reconnaissance, weather reconnaissance, and electronic warfare. The WB-66 weather reconnaissance version was intended to gather weather data over battlefields and had the bomb bay replaced by a pressurized compartment for two weather equipment operations and their equipment. The WB-66D was the last version of the Destroyer built with 36 constructed between June 1957 and June 195
