Submitted
 
Incredible footage from the bomb bay of a B-52 Stratofortress as it completes a bombing run on an uninhabited island. Keep watching for a view of the direct hit at the end! (youtu.be) More...

Kind of miss the good old days when instead of a few they unloaded 108! Mix of 750s and 500 pounders!

They need to put a high def. camera on a bomb and have a live stream back!

Reminiscent of “Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb.”

Now THAT would be awesome. I would love to see the look on an ISIS member's face as he sees the might of the U.S. right before his ass is about to be sent to judgement.

Although I had numerous flights as the navigator in the B-52, we never dropped any bombs. Mostly we did low level flights and "bombed" a radar site in Hastings, Nebraska. The few times that we did carry bombs they were thermonuclear and we REALLY didn't want to drop any of them - U.S. blockade of Cuba.
Great footage!

Sorry to demur, but are we sure they hit the island? Sorry again, t'was kind of boring.
