What's better than a B-36? A B-36 launching a parasite fighter (F-84)! Ten GRB-36D carriers and 25 RF-84K fighters were in service in 1955-6 for recon purposes. Project FICON.

Watch the birdie! The Weapons System Officer (WSO) of an F-4E from the 57th FIS (from Keflavik, Iceland) takes an image of a Tu-142 during a visual intercept mission.

Next level Antonov proposal ... the AN-124-300

XF-91 Thunderceptor. The only aircraft ever built with inverse tapered wings. The second prototype was given a V-tail for extra weirdness. (Ca. 1951)
