Nose detail of the 96th Bomb Sqn. CO's BUFF from the 2nd BW at Barksdale AFB, LA at the 2001 Robins AFB air show. Of interest here are the squadron insignia based on the WW I era 96th Aero Sqn., the commander's name, Lt. Col. Timothy Leaptrott, and the conspicuous skin wrinkles, which are often mis-identified as evidence of aging, but were actually present when factory fresh and are due to tension from wing flex and weight (called Wagner Tension Field).
