Introduction

A documentary series that reviews modern military aircraft including fighters, bombers, transport aircraft, and drones.

Outline

The B-52 Stratofortress is affectionately known as the B.U.F.F., or Big, Ugly, Fat Fellow. Whatever you call it, the B-52 is one imposing beast of a bomber, stretching 159 feet, capable of flying nearly 9,000 miles in a single trip, and able to carry up to 70,000 pounds of weapons at a time. Join us as we crown the Air Force’s longest serving heavyweight champ, a global reach aircraft that has, for more than a half a century, led the way in every major US bombing campaign, from Korea to Vietnam to Iraq and beyond.
