The Tail Code is allegedly for Louisiana, but the real meaning is the B-52H LAughing at the B-1's that have been retired! HA! Long Live the BUFF! --DtD

Look, the most forward edge of the bomb bay is aft of the aft wing spar. I hate to tell them this, but that will never work. ;)

Wow, elevators look huge. Rudder tiny. Barn door flaps. No ailerons. No leading edge devices of any kind. No wing anti-ice either, except for engine inlet anti-ice. Amazing aircraft.

The wrinkles have always been there since the prototype. Look at pictures of the prototype...it had wrinkles. I worked on this aircraft in the early '80s and it had wrinkles then.

Wrinkled because cowboys fly them.

B52H---The most beautiful airplane in the world!!!

A visitor from France posted Tue August 14, 2012:
The skin becomes smooth in the front compartment of the aircraft as the wrinkles expand as soon as the aircraft gains altitude and the front compartment is pressurized. The rear compartment is not pressurized and therefore no need for expansion. It should be noted that the skin is very thin in B-52's

The wrinkles don't look healthy but this is still a great bird!

Long Live the BUFF! Boeing needs to debut a B-52J with those big-ass turbo-fans, composites, gee-whiz avionics and an increased payload. No need for stealth on everything! --DtD

You can tell this is an old aircraft. It has wrinkly skin
