    Me neither! I'm making a little pocketbook with tons of roundels in it so it would really help.

    Actually, Mig-29's are still fairly advanced, and the F-15 is the only plane with a real chance of catching a Mig-25, so Iraq's Air Force was ok in terms of planes, it jusn't wasn't organized and obviously paled in comparison to the USAF.

    England, Saudi Arabia, California (I think, I know it was a mid-west/western state in the U.S.).

    No B-52s that I know of made their runs to Iraq from the states. The B-2 did, from Whiteman AFB in Missouri. B-52s most likely flew out of England or Diego Garcia.

    From Barksdale AFB in Louisiana to Northern Saudi Arabia, non-stop. (They launched cruise missles from there)


    35 hours.

    I remember reading somewhere that a B-52 made a record 36-hour round trip mission to Iraq* and back, from somewhere in the
    western states


    *Might have been Afghanistan

    Hmmm. They didn't for the first Gulf War. Those old dawgs are holding up pretty well considering they are getting pretty old. I guess I have to sit corrected here. I thought they only deployed from US bases to the ME and nearby.

    According to the Air Force fact sheets, the B-52A first flew in 1954. B-52B models began operational service in 1955. The last one built, the B-52H was delivered in 1962. The H models are the only ones still flying. According to Air Force numbers, there are still 85 in active service and 9 in the reserves. Long service life, for sure. When my father was in the Air Force, they had them (1959-1963) and they were in use in my day as well (1984-1988). I don't think Boeing ever envisioned them being in service for anywhere near that long.
