A caption suggestion: "A fistful of throttles..."

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.

What a beauty!!!

Fantastic photo!

A visitor from United States posted Sat April 10, 2010:
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.

Absolutely stunning.......

A visitor from Argentina posted Tue January 19, 2010:
One of the most amazing shots around Anet. Amazing perspective and complexity on this huge and fast monster. Please keep uploading more of your excellent work. Frank from BUE - E01

A visitor from France posted Fri December 11, 2009:
Incredible shot. Great angles, one of those pics that look like a movie by themselves. Dynamic.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Tue November 10, 2009:
A fantastic shot. Well done Kevin.

A visitor from Spain posted Mon November 2, 2009:
Great photo!!! The cockpit seems a little small for a so big plane.

A visitor from Canada posted Sun October 18, 2009:
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?

A visitor from - posted Sun October 18, 2009:
Awesome photo! Congratulations! You guys have a pretty nice work =)

A visitor from - posted Sun October 18, 2009:
KC-135 and B-52 - two of Boeing's logest serving military aircraft types in one photo - great shot!

A visitor from Canada posted Sun October 18, 2009:
Nice photo sir!! I believe those are the planes I want to fly when I become an airman someday.

A visitor from South Africa posted Sun October 18, 2009:
Very good shot indeed, 5 stars all the way.

A visitor from - posted Sun October 18, 2009:
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?

A visitor from France posted Sun October 18, 2009:
What a great picture ! I love the B-52 bomber and this is the best picture i have ever seen !

A visitor from Iran, Islamic Republic Of posted Sun October 18, 2009:
I can't believe! What a shot! thank you

A visitor from Germany posted Sun October 18, 2009:
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.

A visitor from Portugal posted Sat October 17, 2009:
What amaizing photo! Congratulations!

A visitor from United States posted Sat October 17, 2009:
Are they re-fueling during a turn? That's amazing.

A visitor from - posted Sat October 17, 2009:
Great! I never seen the B-52 cockpit before! thanks for sharing

A visitor from Brazil posted Sat October 17, 2009:
Awesome photo

A visitor from United States posted Sat October 17, 2009:
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!

A visitor from Czech Republic posted Sat October 17, 2009:
What I like about the B52 is that if you lose one engine, you still have seven left. That`s just cool :-)

A visitor from Netherlands posted Sat October 17, 2009:
Just; WOW!

A visitor from France posted Sat October 17, 2009:
Left turn, yoke on the right... Lot of work in this place.....

A visitor from Australia posted Sat October 17, 2009:
What's not to like, the 8 throttle levers or the formation refueling flying...

A visitor from United States posted Sat October 17, 2009:
Hey, are you guys doing anything important right now? I just want to snap this picture. Turn to me and say "cheese".
