A visitor from United States posted Sun February 23, 2014:
To correct an earlier poster: 52s are flown in a nose-low attitude because the wing is canted at about a 7-degree angle-of-incidence relative to the fuselage. The reason for this design quirk is that the BUFF's quadricycle landing gear configuration prevents any sort of takeoff rotation; the B-47 used a long forward landing gear strut to achieve the same end.

Just a slight correction to the one commenter, this aircraft would be called 10-oh-eight because it is 61-0008. Balls eight would be 60-0008. But you're right this aircraft was at Carswell starting in about '83 I think when we retired the D models and I think I got to ride on her for an incentive flight.

Still look good lady ! keep it up.....

Wonderful seeing the B-52H looking so good! Was this a fly-by at a B-1B retirement? (Ha ha ha) What a classic low-slow-light approach. The wings generate so much lift with the flaps down, you actually fly her in a nose-down attitude to fly level, not to mention descent.

I really miss the whistling sound of this beast. saw it on and airshow in Illinois few years back.

Peace, the old fashioned way!! Look at the lonely FLIR pod, out there between engines 6 and 7.

A visitor from United States posted Tue June 8, 2010:
'Balls-Eight' - Still flying at 49 years of age! I worked on this beauty in the early '80's at Carswell AFB (now JRB Dallas) and still get thrills seeing it fly! Fly on BUFF!
