    Sorry. I have not been paying attention. Been picking cherries for the last week, 7-8 hours a day, for my schnapps production.
    If you google NASA retires B52, you should find the whole article I printed, and the linked pictures should be there. I saw this bird as a kid. North American Rockwell had some projects that my Father worked on, that allowed him to take us kids to watch. So I saw 008 and also one of the X15 landings, as well as the maiden flight of the XB70. Heady stuff for a 10 year boy.

    Here in OKC, Tinker AFB is a Maintenance Depot for the B-52.
    You see them often.
    Awesome aircraft.

    Saw one a few days ago at about 2000 AGL setting up for landing at Tinker.
    They are big.

    Those things landed on skids if I remember right.
