Doomsday Plane: The Cold-War Era Aircraft That's Nuke-Resistant

When by some chance the superpowers of the world decide to launch their nuclear arsenal, there might not be a lot who would survive the impact. Apart from cockroaches, this aircraft designed during the Cold War might be able to withstand a nuclear blast.

With its giant fuel tanks and ability to refuel in the air from other aircraft, the doomsday plane can stay airborne for several days. It holds 67 satellite dishes and antennas, meaning its crew can communicate with anyone, anywhere in the world, even sending messages to the Navy's ballistic missile submarines, according to DefenseNews.
