B-52 Stratofortress To Get A New Engine.

Tue Sep 28, 2021 9:57 am

The B-52 Stratofortress will be getting a new engine. The Rolls-Royce F-130 Will be the new engine to power the B-52 going forward. This prompts some questions. Will it also get a new nacelle? Will RR really be able to live up to supply demands? I hear the B-52 will fly until the design is 100 years old. Wow!
