60 And Still Going Strong by Barrie Woodward

Currently unavailable for purchase

60 years ago today (15 April 1962) the first B52 took to the skies.

Smoking like a chimney on all 8 P & W engines, this BUFF was performing a single flypast at Farnborough in 2010

My pictures are taken with a Sony DSC-HX1. What you see is pretty much what comes from the memory card, with maybe a touch of rotation and or cropping.
I probably wouldn’t be taking so many pictures if it weren’t for the camera. It has been worth every penny as it has captured some great memories since I got it in 2009.
Feel free to comment on any of the pictures. I’m all for learning how to improve.

    what a great shot!! i’ve seen very few of these flying above me, after all, when you’re on a ship B-52s don’t play anywhere nearby!! congrats on the feature!!

  • Thanks, I think it’s even better to see them take off and land, which they have not been doing for the past couple of years.
