Hello; I’ve been up close to this mighty plane just like the ground crew in this video and only then you realise the sheer size of this massive aircraft. This plane is ancient! It's been around forever! But, still effective after all these years! Truly a great design that stands the test of time! It is truly awe inspiring. In this video; The B 52 is one of my favourite planes together with the C-5 and C-17. B-52 Stratofortress taxi and take off, air crew race to launch multiple B-52 Stratofortress at Barksdale Air Force Base, US Air Force, Louisiana, United States.
