B-52 Airstrike on ISIS
« on: June 05, 2017, 08:39:26 PM »
What an awesome airplane. Wouldn't want to be those guys on the ground. The NVA feared the B-52 like no other weapon. They called it the "Silent Death" because, dropped from 30,000' you never even heard the bombs coming. Carpet bombing troop concentrations, or whatever. (Operation Arc Light) Now you see 'em, now you don't.
