The RB-47E on display in the Tinker AFB Heritage Airpark, tail number 0-34275 (S/N 53-4257), was a dedicated photographic reconnaissance version of the Boeing B-47 Stratojet.

The aircraft on display at Tinker never saw the frontlines of the Cold War during its entire career with the Wright Air Development Center at Wright-Patterson AFB, Ohio.
