Boeing B-52 Stratofortress (60-0015)
“The Last Laugh” at Barksdale Air Force Base.
Beautiful sight! I see this big bird from time to time as I live near Tinker Air Force Base in Midwest City/Oklahoma City area......SHE IS A SIGHT!
James we get Tinker aircraft down here on a regular basis. There was an E-3 down for about an hour yesterday doing touch and goes then climbed out to the north and was gone for good.
Absolutely beautiful machine. Almost (aborted on takeoff) got a "Buff" flight out of Offut AFB in the 80's. Unfortunately didn't get another chance.
I used to love watching them go out over Lake Huron then turn in and land at Wurtsmith AFB in Michigan years ago.
Karl, how many years ago? I might have been in one of those...I was there Nov 82-May 86 as a Standardization/Evaluation Bombardier (SAC actually called them Radar Navigators).
Neil, Were you ever at Wright Patt or Barksdale. Your name sounds familiar. I was at Wright Patt June 74-June75, then on to Barksdale June 75 until my DOS Dec 1978.
Remember seeing these planes on practice bombing runs following the Niobrara river in Northwest Nebraska in the 1970's
