            B-52H aircraft

            B-52

            In its sixth decade of operational service, the B-52 continues to be a major contributor to U.S. and allied forces.

            Serving the U.S. for Decades to Come

            The Boeing B-52 primarily provides the United States with immediate nuclear and conventional global strike capability. The B-52 is the most combat capable bomber in the U.S. inventory. Due to its high mission-capable rate, large payload, long range, persistence and ability to employ both nuclear and conventional precision standoff weapons, the B-52 continues to be a critical contributor to the U.S. National Security Strategy.

            Originally designed as an intercontinental, high-altitude nuclear bomber, the B-52’s operational capabilities have advanced over the years to meet changing national defense needs. Boeing built 744 B-52s and delivered the last, a B-52H, in October 1962. Only the H model is still in the Air Force inventory; it is assigned to Air Force Global Strike Command.

              B-52 Quick Facts

              • The B-52’s 185-foot wingspan is too wide to take off or land in a crossing using traditional flying techniques.
              • Boeing engineers designed special landing gear that could align with the runway allowing special takeoffs and landings.
              • The original design of the B-52 placed a gunner in the tail of the aircraft. Later designs moved the gunner forward with the rest of the crew.
              • After the Gulf War in the early 1990s, the gunner position and defensive machine guns were eliminated.
              • U.S. Air Force engineering studies suggest that the lifespan of the B-52 could extend beyond 2040.
