When this photograph was taken in 1987 this silver B-52F had been in storage at AMARC since 1970. Her markings denote the glory days of SAC and she carries the bear's foot "Ducemus" badge of the 22nd BMW based at Mather AFB CA. She could be 57-0136 and it is also possible that she flew combat missions during "Arc Light" operations in Vietnam in 1965. I suspect that she was scrapped not long after this photograph was taken, a sad end for a Cold War warrior.
