Not many years between them…last B17 built in 1945, and first flight of B52 in 1952….
Early models of the B-17 were around in 1940. Maybe add a few years to the gap? More amazing might the huge advancement between Convair's B-36 and B-58 in 10 yrs.
Amazing the size difference. Imagine a WW2 type squadron of B-52's on a carpet bombing run over a major city.
