This B-52 entered service in 1961, a year before the Cuba Missile Crisis. At that time B-52s operated round the clock on QRA and spent lengthy detachments (TDYs) in the UK – Fairford, Brize Norton, Upper Heyford and Greenham Common were all USAF bases at that time. This may well have been one of those that woke me up at night as a small child living near the end of the Brize runway. Half a century later, it is seen here arriving for RIAT. It is from 23 Bomb Sqn, 5 Bomb Wing, Minot, North Dakota.
