I was looking at the side-view and thinking that the fuselage length didn't look right (shortened).

I then went Googling (bad English but you get the idea) and found this image. Turns out that the massive wing does make the fuselage look short.

YouTube's got lots of B-36 videos, inlduing the take-off from "SAC" -- the one with Jimmie Stewart and "Colonel Potter" in his younger days....

Looks to be about three or four wing roots ahead and beind of the wing.
