Boeing B-52 Stratofortress (AFR61017) - 2nd Bomb Wing B-52H Stratofortress from Barksdale AFB gives the spectactors some nice passes.  From several Air Ventures ago.  Looking like these bombers will be active for a long time in to the future.

These beasts are no longer just used for carpet bombing. Upgradges to modern radar and guidance systems gives it the ability for precision target aquisition. Smart bombs and missiles.

A fine example of what Boeing used to be able to do.

Great photos Ken! I missed the bomber year at Oshkosh if this is from 2017. The B52 only made ONE pass last year..

The Year of the Bomber at Oshkosh was really good back in '17 - B-1, B-52 & B-2 in formation.
You are right, this year was a BUFF disappointment with only 1 pass.
You probably are right, from that same year. Although I was thinking more recent were a lone B-52 came in and just did a couple passes....either '21 or '22.

Flew on C and D models during Vietnam. Electronic Warfare. Hell of a plane.

If they can keep the B-52, why can't they keep the A-10?
