Guam B-52 Crash
« on: May 19, 2016, 07:11:36 AM »
No injuries reported

Is it still the case that at least one is always in the air, and carrying nukes?

I think during the 90's, the Air Force took all B-52s and B-1s off of 'nuclear alert', meaning there are no longer any bombers carrying nuclear armament while airborne. Anybody want to back me up on this if I am correct. I think the only thing carrying nukes around these days are the 'boomers' with the US Navy and nobody knows where the are at any given time except the Navy and the President.  ::cheers::
If it ain't Boeing, I ain't working on it or flying on it!

There was an article recently published about the Air Force and the state of the aircraft, how there are less flight crews, less experienced crews working on the planes and it is getting hard to get parts and they have had to strip parts off of mothballed planes in the boneyard or museums.
There's no reason to become alarmed, and we hope you'll enjoy the rest of your flight. By the way, is there anyone on board who knows how to fly a plane?

The Air Force should have read Dale Brown and converted the 52s to Megafortresses!   The 52s are older than anyone in the service today.    :groan:
