Few other combat aircraft have as lengthy a service career as the B-52 Stratofortress. Having experienced conflicts ranging from the Cold War in the early 1950s to the Gulf War 40 years later, the versatility of the B-52 has marked its place in military aviation history. Originally manufactured in 1955, our RB-52B model was delivered to the Lowry Technical Training Center at Lowry Air Force Base to be used as a trainer, and in 1994 was transferred to Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum.
Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum features more than 50 aircraft and space vehicles. Visit us to see the full collection.
