The Northrop YB-49 was a prototype jet-powered heavy bomber aircraft developed by Northrop shortly after World War II. Intended for service with the U.S. Air Force, the YB-49 would feature a flying wing design. A flying wing is a tailless fixed-wing aircraft which has no definite fuselage, with most of the crew, payload and equipment being housed inside the main wing structure.

The YB-49 was a jet-powered development of the piston-engined Northrop XB-35 and YB-35; the two YB-49s actually built were both converted YB-35 test aircraft. However, the YB-49 never entered production, being passed over in favor of the more conventional Convair B-36 Peacemaker piston-driven design.

Dimensions: 6"L x 24"W x 5"H
