Description

Artist Unknown Go Places Faster Join the U.S. Air Force. B-52 Stratofortress streaks upward in dramatic image that lists possible slots including photomapping and atomic weapons. The B-52 was launched at the behest of Curtis LeMay in 1955. LeMay originally visualized the long range, subsonic, jet powered strategic long range bomber as a nuclear delivery system during the cold war.  It saw extensive service during the Vietnam War and is still in use with multiple upgrades.  Alas, installing a toilet was not one of the upgrades.  A replacement was announced in 2021 but has not yet appeared. Extremely rare. 40×28 near mint, conservation backed.
