B-52 #60-0001 was the first H series B-52. It carries the nickname and nose art "Memphis Belle IV". The original "Memphis Belle" was a B-17, made famous by its missions during World War II and later on by a Hollywood movie. The model is also the first to be equipped with the six-barrel cannon in the tail with which all B-52Hs were originally delivered with.

Boeing B-52H 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.
