B-52 Stratofortress flying at the 2022 Pacific Airshow. Affectionally known as the BUFF(BIG UGLY FAT FELLOW). These planes have been flying since the 50’s and were a big part of our nuclear deterrent back in the days. There was a time that we would have several planes up 24 hours a day ready to drop bombs on Russia if the need arose. This planes only makes 3 passes during the airshow, because the turn radius is so long.
