Any of you in the DC area during the mid 1950s when they flew a huge flight of B52s over Washington DC. I can rembered it as a kid they flew low and slow over the City. The point of it was to let the Russian Embassy see, count, and photograph them so that they would have no doubt about how many we had "a lot". My memory of it as a kid was that you could see the numbers on each plane and it seemed to go on for a long time.
