America’s aging aviation force is putting America at risk. The youngest B-52 bomber rolled off the assembly line 50 years ago. Remarkably, it’s still flying.

The B-52 might be among the Air Force’s most recognizable planes. Its maiden flight was in April 1952 when President Dwight D. Eisenhower occupied the White House and the Cold War posed the greatest threat to America’s security. Today it is still flying out of Minot Air Force Base in North Dakota.
