The "Ghost Rider" B-52 Rises From The Grave To Ride Again

提交时间:
 
U.S. Air Force serial number 61-0007, a B-52H known by its nose art as "Ghost Rider," was brought out of seven years of storage at the Defense Department's boneyard in Arizona. Its new mission? To replace an active B-52H that was badly damaged by fire while on the ground at Barksdale Air Force Base and make the USAF arms treaty-dictated fleet of 76 B-52s whole once again (foxtrotalpha.jalopnik.com) 更多...

Glad it is coming back.... Wish they had more of them back in service.... The B52 is one of the best bombers of all time.

Ghost Rider is the real Phoenix. They must have learned a lot from this first experience.

I worked on her when I was at K.I. Sawyer. I was at K.I. Sawyer long enough for all of the H models to cycle through. These things were built to last.

Why can't they bring the rest of the B-52Hs in storage at the "Boneyard" up to "mission ready status" (with all the bells and whistles found on all the rest of the BUFFS in the fleet and put them back into storage if "something hits the fan"?

Just plain awesome!

This is not the first time an aircraft left the "boneyard". A few years ago NASA got a regenerated WB-50 after something like 30 years in storage. All of the QF-4's came from there along with the new QF-16's. Making aircraft ready to return to the fleet is part of the mission of AMARC.

And all those very fast and pretty F-106's that got shot down in the Gulf of Mexico? F-102's, F-84's as well.

The amount of destructive power carried by these aircraft could make a nice parking lot in Afghanistan for the new Wal Mar.

I worked as an ECM tech on this 1007 at Minot in 1967 1968.

Very cool!

I always loved that aircraft. Sure, with eight of everything to work on it kept us all busy. I worked on the D models while in Guam. 18 months of nothing but B-52D's. It was then, it is still now ONE AWESOME BOMBER!!! There will never, ever be another aircraft of that type.

ISIS lives by intimidation, destruction, power, and cowardly acts. A small fleet of these B52's carpet bombing their strongholds would have them on their knees crying for their mama. Sure was effective in moving the Viet Cong out of Cambodia.

Bomb the crap out of ISIS , that's great but for the civilian population interspersed among their hoards. This is the reason it's not already done & we know they're crazy but they're not stupid. I wish we could get rid of these nutjobs quicker!

If ISIS lives by intimidation, lets give them some.. take a fleet of B52's and give them NON-STOP 24 hour bombing from these planes... Give them some intimidation and see how long they last, but as long as we have a muslin pres, that will never happen.

They should take them all out of mothballs and use them repeatedly to bombthe animals in the Middle East in to oblivion! Instead Obama will probably use them to transport his family and friends on junkets, on our dime, of course!

Keep drinking the kool-aide! Use the aircraft for what it was designed for, destroying the enemy!

Wat een knap staaltje werk van de vliegtuigontwerpers in die tijd. Je kan met zo'n toestel heel veel materieel van de vijand vernietigen en tegelijkertijd mensenlevens redden in een aanvalsvlucht. Mergem.

Using Bing translator "What a handsome piece of work of the aircraft designers at the time. You can with such a device very much stock of destroy the enemy and at the same time people save lives in a window of a flight. Mergem"
