Part of the approximately 70 B-52s still active today operate from Minot Air Base in North Dakota as part of the 23rd Bomb Squadron, the "Bomber Barons". 60-0005, nicknamed "War Birds" is the aircraft of the Wing Commander.

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.
