The pitiful, pathetic waste that is war- and those who love it.

Awesome photo

A visitor from United States posted Sun November 24, 2013:
I'm not even going to try to count all of them.

Great Plane, and great photo. The H model's are still in service yet today. I loved getting the opportunity to work on and around this plane while stationed at Minot AFB, ND. The plane that's older than most of it's pilots...and that got a new lease on life for more upgrades to extend its use for another 30 years. 30 more years or more on a already 50 year old model plane. Awesome!

A visitor from United States posted Wed July 4, 2012:
Although "nothing lasts forever", it still makes me very sad to see them die like this... Such was their value to peace (and historical value as well) that each and every one of them should be have turned into a monument!

A visitor from - posted Fri August 26, 2011:
That ain't all of'em...there's still a ton in service, various upgrades that will keep'em around for another 30 or so years. Still a sad pic tho.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sat January 29, 2011:
B-52 anyone?

A visitor from Mexico posted Tue January 11, 2011:
This shows the price of freedom---and look at all the peace time jobs created building these bomb platforms.
And, what a classic piece of engineering to last for more than FIFTY YEARS! "Peace is our Profession" was SACS's motto! A salute to all who served and still serve!

A visitor from - posted Fri December 10, 2010:
Great angle with perfect lighting; framed for maximum effect.

A visitor from United States posted Tue November 30, 2010:
Awesome photograph - almost like an abstract painting. Early examples with tall tails are towards the top and right, while later clipped tail bombers are towards the bottom. To the folks that think this was a waste of money - the B-52 represents one of the all-time BEST values for the American people! Do some homework - this bird was first designed not long after World War 2. Examples STILL fly today thanks to various upgrade programs over the years. We taxpayers really got our money's worth on this one! Rest in Peace, warriors - Job Well Done.

A visitor from - posted Sun November 21, 2010:
Ignore the pacifist weenies. Gen. Curtis "Peace Through Superior Firepower" LeMay was the greatest peace activist of the Cold War. Stalin and the Evil Red Empire caused these awesome Strategic Air Command bombers to be built and deployed. They were the aluminum superfortress walls in the sky that kept us safe from those lowlife dirtbags. They packed 10 megaton H-Bombs and stayed on station in the stratosphere for 50 years. RIP mighty BUFFs and thank you for our freedom. Well done.

Another great photo by Gerhard Plomitzer;
After reading all the comments from all the visitors, I'll tell you what "saddens" me; One "visitor" form the U.S.A. is "saddened" that his/her own gov't "felt the need to build such a force"; he/she no doubt thinks Jane Fonda is a patriot also! I'm also "saddened" that such "dweebs" think freedom is free!
Were it not for the "hardware" in this photograph, you may very well not have the freedom to openly make such stupid, idiotic remarks; a lot of people in this world don't, FYI !

A visitor from United States posted Tue October 12, 2010:
A lot of money died on that field.absolutely unbelieveable,thats makes me sad.

A visitor from United States posted Mon May 10, 2010:
The money on that field! I had no idea they built that many!

A visitor from - posted Wed March 10, 2010:
Why are people so sad?

These magnificent planes served their purpose.

We should be happy that we live in a world that is much safer and we no longer need so many.

A visitor from - posted Sat February 6, 2010:
Great shot, these B-52s did their duty and now they will be laid to rest because it cost too much money to maintain them all. Let me assure you tho that our tax dollars were not wasted because these aircraft kept our country safe during a very unsafe time. They will not be forgotten.

The comment below this one is the best! :) If I were an American I would sure want to join the club of "B-52 receivers" LOL! Btw it is the saddest thing on earth that the tomcats must go this way too, I just love those beatiful fighters....

A visitor from Canada posted Sun December 17, 2006:
This is a good photo of the old B-52's. remember when they were flying overhead in Nam the noise they made, it was good to hear them as they meant help was near. That was a different time

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun October 22, 2006:
An amazing photo which captures the might of the USAF and the spendthrift nature of the American government !

Has anybody seen my B-52???

A visitor from United States posted Tue August 8, 2006:
If you look on Google Earth, you can see an area where cut up B-52s sit exposed, in pieces. The Air Force left them in the open so that Soviet / Russian spy satellites could see them sitting there, to show their complaince with the SALT II treaty. It is a sad sight.

A visitor from United States posted Tue August 8, 2006:
There's so many. Great, maybe the USAF won't notice if I take one then..

A visitor from United States posted Mon July 31, 2006:

Let's fire them back up into service.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Tue April 18, 2006:
You should look up Tuscon @ the google earth programm you can see lots of planes there (tomcats,Phantoms etc. etc.)

A visitor from Canada posted Sun April 9, 2006:
Firstly, great shot. Wow - that many aircraft.

Secondly, do the pacifists not remember the Cold War? I think massive military build up, although rediculous, was better than the alternative: Soviet Control. I am not saying that the current force is justified, but this shot is of aircraft that were build in a different, more dangerous (at least overtly so) world.

A visitor from Mexico posted Wed March 29, 2006:
I hope they can recycle all that metal and components

A visitor from United States posted Tue March 21, 2006:
As a former pilot in the US 8th AF - I probably flew a few of these birds!

A visitor from United States posted Sat February 18, 2006:
A great bargain. Think of it, the aircraft were built and in service for more than a quarter century. They did their job. And while it is sad to see them this way in their retirement their likes will never be seen again.

A visitor from Canada posted Mon February 6, 2006:
I wonder how many hospitals could have been built with the money invested in these aircraft? Nice, but depressing shot.

A visitor from Poland posted Mon January 30, 2006:

A visitor from United States posted Sat January 21, 2006:
This is the kind of photo that brings tears to my eyes. Seeing all those old birds at the bone yard. I got the privlege of seening my old C-141 being cut in two on the History Channel. I wanted to die

A visitor from United States posted Fri December 2, 2005:
Although I can see the beauty in the patterns of these magnificently engineered aircrafts... I'm saddened that my own government felt the need to build such a force. Maybe if for once they would think about how their decisions will affect the rest of the worlds thoughts on our country, the effort put forth to create these, could have been put to better more productive uses.

A visitor from Hong Kong posted Fri November 25, 2005:
