What's not to like, the 8 throttle levers or the formation refueling flying...

What I like about the B52 is that if you lose one engine, you still have seven left. That`s just cool :-)

Somehow saying this is an awesome photo isn't enough, but awesome it certainly is that and more! This photo is worth 100 + stars and that's what I'd give it if the powers that be here at a.net would let me. Thanks Kevin!

Oh wow! They're wearing oxygen masks and parachutes as well as gloves. Seems to be a real bad girl this B52! Congrats on this shot and I tip my hat to these guys who know how to fly without all that computer stuff.

Definitively a view from a different perspective. Btw, why the B52 has never been re-engined with 4 modern tubofans? Wouldn't it improve its range compared to those 1950's jets?

WOW the U.S. really spends a lot of money keeping these relics flying... The B-52 is 48 years old and the KC-135 is 41 years old. I'm sure that most of the crews working on and flying these old birds are about half that age. What is the point of the B-52 these days anyways?

Great Photo!!!! Btw the KC-135 first started service in 1957 so its 53 years old. The B-52 was introduce in 1955 making it 55 years old. Amazing the use these planes still receive and holding together like they do. Btw I am a maintainer on a KC-135R.

If I'm not mistaken, IFR is always flown from the left seat because if you notice, the fuel control panel is in front of the co-pilot's knees. He has to direct incoming fuel.
