What can I say?
"If it ain't Boeing, I ain't going!"
comes to mind.
Great to see another Superfort in the air.

Amazing capture!

Casey... I'm glad to see you made it to Barksdale AFB this year for their big airshow!

The most impressive plane for me is that 8 engine Boeing B-52 Stratofortress. Although production started in 1952 they are still in service, and expected to be in service for another 25 years.

BUFF, father and grandfather. What an awesome trio!

Bill Boeing would be proud!

Nice to see that "Doc" is getting around!

Stunning Picture!

Recips are to the firewall. BUFF is at minimums, in a shallow dive, and flaps extended. Boy how far we have come! Great shot sir.

My father-in-law flew the B17 (shot down over Italy, bailed out), my father flew the B29 and the B52 and I was a navigator and bombardier in the B52. I get a little tingle up the back of my neck just looking at these great warbirds. Fantastic shot!
Tim Bynum
An awesome tribute to all of the volunteers who have put years and years of time into restoring Doc! Great job!!

Whenever I see a photo of close formation flying like this, I can't help but think of the XB-70 and what happened to it.

Neil,
Thank you and your Father in Law and Dad for your service! You ARE great Americans, just like these war birds!
Michael Beckhoff
How can you not give this shot 5 stars??
