Remark
Photographer
58-0176 (cn 464244) Up close and personal with a BUFF (the B-52's universal nickname: Big Ugly Fat Fella). It's of the 668th Bomb, Sqn., 416th Bomb Wg, SAC, is seen shortly after take off, coming over the perimeter fence at characteristically low altitude. This BUFF shows evidence of the transition taking place in bomber color schemes at the time, with its Vietnam-era camouflage interrupted by replacement parts finished in the new Strategic Scheme dark gray.

Remark
Photographer
57-6515 (cn 464220) 668th Bomb. Sqn., 416th Bomb. Wing, SAC, "Mohawk Warrior". Another Desert Storm veteran, this B-52 benefits from the attentions of maintenence men as they concentrate on no.1 J-57-P43W engine. The gentleman kneeling on the far right with camera is Canadian photographer Tony Cassanova, who was gathering material for a Griffiss photo book (unfortunately never published).

Remark
Photographer
59-2581 (cn 464344) 416th Bomb. Wing, 668th Bomb. Sqn, SAC. Displays new "Strategic Scheme" introduced a couple of years earlier (and much darker than previous scheme). Coincidentally, unit tail markings were applied and the 416th made theirs a "billboard" for the Statue of Liberty!

Remark
Photographer
58-0184 (cn 464252) 668th Bomb. Sqn., 416th Bomb. Wing; cruise missile capable (first unit so-equipped). Air Force 58-0184. Note nose areas overpainted Gunship Gray; this was temporary measure to reduce visibility of highly reflective components. Bombers were eventually repainted in much darker scheme.
