Is there any bomber more iconic than the Boeing B-52 Stratofortress? Few planes have the longevity and power brought forth by this massive behemoth of the skies. There is a damn good reason that the Air Force and fans around the world love the legendary B-52 Stratofortress as much as they do.
For over 60 years the B-52 has been a mainstay of the United States Air Force, coming in to drop bombs and finish the job. The reason it has kept serving in combat missions for so long is that no better aircraft suited for carpet bombing enemies like that B-52. These jets have been consistently upgraded with modern avionics, weaponry systems, and more efficient engines to improve performance.
This B-52 participated in Exercise Ample Strike 2017 in the Czech Republic to deter the growing threat of Russian Forces. It is a little bit unusual to see a B-52 in Europe, but it certainly has been making its presence known while its over there. Take a look at this great video from TopFelya as the B-52 takes off for combat exercises, I hope you like lots of smoke.
