The last “new” B-52H was delivered in 1963 but the B-52 continues to serve today and is likely to continue to do so for decades to come. The B-52 has evolved from a high altitude “atom bomber”, as originally designed, to a high altitude “bomb truck”, as deployed in Viet Nam, to a modernized weapon system that can deliver tons of ordnance on target using smart bombs or un-guided “dumb” bombs. This Minicraft B-52H represents the B-52 early in its career as a unit of the elite Strategic Air Command atom bomb armed sentinel of the Cold War.
