The YB-49 was a prototype jet-powered heavy bomber aircraft developed by Northrop shortly after World War II. It was intended for service with the U.S. Air Force, the YB-49 featured a flying wing design. Unfortunately the YB-49 never entered production, it was passed over in favor of the more conventional Convair B-36 Peacemaker piston-driven design.

This model is personally signed by Robert "Bob" Cardenas. Cardenas a retired Brigadier General of the United States Air Force. After WWII, he started piloting experimental aircraft. In 1948, Cardenas was the Officer in Charge of Flight Test Division at Muroc Air Force Base and was Chief Air Force Test Pilot of the Northrop YB-49 flying wing. Certificate of Authenticity included.

This handcrafted model is painstakingly built from Philippine mahogany by our skilled craftsmen with a wealth of detail and makes a great gift for any veteran, aviation enthusiast or history buff.
