B-52 Stratofortress Still Flying

When I was born, the last of the newly built B52 bombers were being accepted by the Air Force. And today these massive bombers are still flying. The link below is a radio story on this weapon system that is over 60 years old. While I do not think I have any B52s in my gaming collection I wanted to share this.

From the NPR website 
The B-52 Stratofortress bomber was first developed by Boeing in 1952. NPR's Scott Simon talks with Wired's Eric Adams about how an aircraft that old has such staying power.
