Pictured at The National Museum of Nuclear Science and History, this RB-52B, only the 15th 'BUFF' produced. On the 21st May 1956 a bomb carried by this aircraft created a storm hotter than the sun over the Bikini Atoll in the Pacific when flying with the Air Research and Development Command. A 3.75 megatons Mk.15 hydrogen bomb was dropped, the first time that a B-52 had been used as a carrier and drop plane for this weapon [Nikon D3]
