The TB-47B was a conversion of the standard B-47B as a transition
trainer for pilots and navigators. It was basically similar to the
B-47B but had a fourth crew position added for an instructor. All armament and
ECM equipment was removed.
48 B-47Bs were modified to TB-47B configuration at Douglas-Tulsa, and 18
were modified by the USAF at Oklahoma City
