Uh, the only fatalities in a B-52 during the early '80s that I recall was a G model that flew into a plateau out west somewhere. I don't recall any D model crashes with fatalities. We had one lose steering and run off the runway at Carswell. We called it The Weed Eater.

Yeah, and upgraded versions are still going strong. That shows what a quality beast this is. Even Jeremy Clarkson digs it! ("I know you got soul")
