The newest B-52 in the Air Force fleet was built the same year as this truck...

57 years ago. That is, the last B-52 built for the Air Force entered service in 1962. The rest of our B-52 fleet is older than that. Pretty amazing to be relying on 60 year old planes.

They expect B-52s to remain in active service through 2050.
