#1 I love these BUFFs.
They need sooo much runway, and they are so big they look like they are just ambling down to the end. Then at the last minute the nose begins to lift and off they go!

I don't want to see one overhead.

#2 You would think seeing one overhead wouldn't be a problem... unless it's opening it's bombay doors.

#3 If it's overhead it likely won't kill 'ya CF... now at an angle of say umm..40 degrees above horizon you might have serious temporal issues.

#4 Asked this recently and all B-52 in service are from 1961-1962...

#6 Frankly, I can think of about 750 areas where I'd like to see them with bomb bay doors open and the release pickle in a determined hand. Riyadh, SA, is high on the list, along with the entire area of "Pashtunistan". Doing what that "D" model is doing, only more so.
