Derrick George Sr.On my way to Vietnam I was stationed at Camp Hanson on the island of Okinawa. The Kadena Air Force base was on the end of the island. When the B52s would take off to bomb North Vietnam they would sometimes fly over the camp. The sound and feel I'll never forget. They were maybe 500 feet over the camp! Later the KC135s would take off and meet them on the way back for refueling,2 hours ago   ·  1

EAA - Vintage Aircraft AssociationThe B-52 is a fitting addition to Oshkosh 2015, as it marks the 60th anniversary of the aircraft entering active military service. Tentative plans are for the aircraft to arrive a few days prior to opening day and be on the ramp until the Monday after convention. A brief history of the B-52 and its planned stay in Oshkosh at the link below: www.eaa.org/en/airventure/eaa-airventure-news-and-multimedia/eaa-airventure-news/2015-eaa-airvent...1 day ago   ·  3
