    I can tell you right now that's not fake. Nobody who would fake that would also be smart enough to realize that the 52 flies nose down at low speed. Watch a 52 take off and you will realize the rear fuselage gear leaves the ground before the nose fuselage gear.

    Awsome pic!!!

    Hello All
    New here so i hope you don't mind me butting in. The picture is true.It was a joint excersice in the Persian Gulf in 1990 between Airforce and Navy. At the end of the excersice the B-52s,there were 2,ask if they could do a fly by and the navy controller said yes. 9 Klm out the B-52 asked if they could see him ,the navy controller said no so the B-52 said look lower and there he was.The Admiral on board ask for a second flyby so they could see them this time. The B-52 abliged .
