ll B-52s currently flying are powered by TF-33(JT-3D) turbofans. I was talking about B-52s like these:
The "diesel" B-52s are long gone as part of an agreement we have with Russia. The H models currently in service have turbofans, and they're the only 44 models still around. There is also plans in the work to replace the eight TF-33s with four modern *high bypass* turbofans of some sort so they can fly until 2040.

Considering military aircraft, there are the A-3s that Raytheon operates (J57/JT3C), MiG-15s (VK-1), MiG-17s (VK-1), MiG-19s (RD-9), MiG-21s (R-13), T-37s (J69), F-4s (J79) T-2s (J85) and F-5s (J85) still in service.
T-38s can be added to that list. The J85 isn't going anywhere anytime soon because it's one of the more efficient turbojets and there's nothing else in the (small) size class to replace it with. The USAF
plans to keep the T-38s until 2040!
There are a number of military aircraft still flying with turbojets, but I believe the majority of civil aircraft are now turbofans.
