ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - A massive Boeing B-47 Stratojet got its wings back on Monday.
The aircraft arrived in parts in August at the National Museum of Nuclear Science and History in Albuquerque.
The plane was disassembled in Ohio, shipped to Albuquerque, and In the next two weeks, the engine and other parts of the plane will also be installed.
It will then be on permanent display.
"It is a very important piece of Cold War history," said museum Director Jim Walther. "These were the bombers that were first set up to defend our nation from the Soviet Union right as the Cold War began, and these bombers were the first ones that were jet-powered, and so they're a unique part of history."
The B-47s were the first bombers set up to defend the U.S. from the Soviet Union during the Cold War.
Getting the B-47 here and reassembling it is costing $145,000, most of which came from fundraising.
