Weekend extra
One of the oddest B-47B conversions was the "CL-52", which was a B-47B loaned in 1956 to the Royal Canadian Air Force to test the big Orenda Iroquois turbojet for the Avro Canada CF-105 Arrow interceptor. Canadair attached the Iroquois engine to the right side of the rear fuselage near the tail, of all places, simply because there was no other place to put it. Flying the CL-52 was reportedly a nightmare.

After about 35 hours of engine flight tests, the Arrow project was cancelled in early 1959, and the B-47B / CL-52 was returned to the US. Some sources claimed it was bent out of shape by the tests, but in any case it was then scrapped. The CL-52 was the only B-47, or for that matter the only US heavy strategic jet bomber, to ever be used by any foreign service.
