Limited Edition

Boeing B-52G Stratofortress   9.75"   11"

Originally part of the 416th Bombardment Wing based at Griffiss Air Force Base in New York State, this B-52G was transferred to the 1708th Provisional Bomb Wing, operating out of Jeddah in Saudi Arabia as part of Operation Desert Storm in 1991. A small palm tree was added next to the mission markings on the left side after "SAC Time" blew up a palm tree during one run over Iraq.

Boeing B-52G Stratofortress

Designed to meet an Air Materiel Command requirement for a long-range, strategic bomber, the B-52 Stratofortress was first flown on April 15, 1952. First envisioned as a straight wing, six turboprop aircraft, the B-52 underwent a number of design changes before becoming the swept-wing, eight turbojet aircraft it is today. Originally built for Cold War era "deterrence" missions, this aircraft is capable of carrying nuclear weapons but in actual combat has only dropped conventional munitions. Its long service career has included Vietnam, the Persian Gulf and Afghanistan and Iraq, and it is expected to continue serving until at least 2040.
