Air Power The Cold War

Boeing B-52F Stratofortress

I took these pictures on my Hakodate Dawn mission at 1300 hrs. These screenshots were taken in Microsoft Flight Simulator 2002.
Starting this beast up and watching the Engine indicators - count them! - come to life is fun. Landing it is even more fun!
Produced in the late 50's, the F models were distinct in that they were the first aircraft to be involved in the Vietnam conflict.
This model depicts the first version of camouflage that was applied to the B-52 in the late 60's. 550173 was retired 22/09/71.
