The Age Old Bomber that has seen it all...

The B52, since the end of World War 2 till present day. It has retain its role as the Strategic Bomber of the United States. For 50 over years, the B52 bomber has been in conflicts around the world, providing aerial bombardment for the United States. With a payload of 27200kg, it dwarves all bombers payload in the USAF. The Airforce intends to keep them till 2040 and if no bomber replace the B52H till then, its lifespan would be 90 years plus since the first B52 flew. A incredible achievement by any military aviation standards.

I present to u, the B-52H, Strategic Bomber, and Great Bomber in Aviation History
