065 – B-52 Stratofortress

Bomber Month continues with the mighty Boeing B-52 Stratofortress!

This week, Mr. Ken Katz, a former U.S. Air Force flight test engineer who literally wrote the book on the B-52, joins us to talk all about the mighty “BUFF” including the several variants, its many weapons, and most impressively–how it may end up being the first aircraft in history to fly operationally for 100 years.
