phrawgh: Tax dollars at work!
NewportBarGuy: At least they didn't explode:Maverick requesting permission for flyby... TALK TO ME GOOSE!"/I think both pilot and navigator lived in that one. He says "two chutes", so I'm hopeful.//B-52 at mere feet above sea level? Holy crap!//Heard they used to ask the B-1 boys to buzz the mountains in Afghanistan to scare the sh*t out of the Taliban.
bhcompy: SpeedyBB: Lt Col "Bud" Holland, Commander of Czar 52, would like a word with you.Unfortunately, he's indisposed at the moment. (Points to greasy spot on runway.)Was that the one that went perpendicular?
3StratMan: [i831.photobucket.com image 682x520]Every time I see this picture, I always marvel at it, and wonder what the hell was going through everyone on board's minds, and out of their mouths, at the moment that picture was taken.
Rent Party: From some of these other images, I have to retract my "smells like bulshiat" assessment and convert it to "B-52 pilots are farking nuts."

CaliNJGuy: I was an Interior Communications Technician and worked on the Fresnel Lens Optical Landing System (a stabilized glide slope indicator) and the video system that recorded all flight operations. One day while we were on deployment (1983) just outside the Persian Gulf I was at my watch station in Primary Flight Control when we heard over the radio "Hey did you guys know you have an Iranian P-3 in your starborad delta?" (Starboard "D" is a standard holding pattern for lack of a better term in carrier operations). The post-Shat Iranians were still operating some US supplied aircraft at the time. Saw some video of some other crazy stuff including some F-14's farking w/a Soviet SU-21 over the Sea of Japan. There's a lot of stuff that goes on that the public never hears about.
