There is a RB-36H on display here in the Central Valley at Atwater, CA. outside of the old Castle Air Force Base http://www.castleairmuseum.org/convairrb36h

"The aircraft on display at Castle Air Museum is one of only four B-36 aircraft remaining and the only reconnaissance version".

It's a beast of an aircraft and would be interesting to see one of these become airworthy.

There's also a regular B-36 at the museum at Wright-Patterson Air Force base in Dayton, OH
