That could be it because every time I fly, I seem to get the, 'boot' from whoever sits behind me.  >:(

It had to be a while ago, huh?

Fantastic looking aircraft. We walked around one on static display at RAF Leuchars a few years ago. very impressive. Got some photo's somewhere if I can find 'em.

Absolutely is. It's great to see a 40+ year old design is still in frontline service.

A good portion of current US aircraft designs date back 40-plus years - F-15, F-16, F-18. The B-52 is very likely going to become the '100 year bomber'

Hell, the first flight of the F-117 was in '81. That design is 40 years old now.

Are you still in frontline service, Bawb? I thought you'd retired to the rear area a while ago.  :2funny:

Exactly, yes. I wasn't trying to be a smartass (lol); I was truly just stating how damned impressive it is that old airframes like that are still damned effective.

Best not to mention the 'rear area' thank you very much!

Yes, it say a lot for the design of aircraft that keeps them effective for so long. The B52 is just legendary.
