Today In Cold War History
1949 – Captain James Gallagher lands his B-50 Superfortress Lucky Lady II in Fort Worth, Texas after completing the first non-stop around-the-world airplane flight in 94 hours and one minute. Lieutenant General Curtis LeMay, Strategic Air Command’s commanding general, was on hand to greet Lucky Lady II upon its arrival, together with dignitaries including Secretary of the Air Force W. Stuart Symington, Air Force Chief of Staff General Hoyt S. Vandenberg, and Major General Roger M. Ramey, commanding general of the Eighth Air Force. LeMay cited the significance of the mission as indicating that the Air Force now had the capability to take off on bombing missions from anywhere in the United States to “any place in the world that required the atomic bomb”. He further stated that mid-air refueling could also be used for fighter aircraft. Symington noted that aerial refueling would “turn medium bombers into inter-continental bombers”.
