The B-52 Stratofortress made an awesome display of power and grace yesterday at the air show at Barksdale Air Force Base in Bossier City, Louisiana.

The B-52, nick-named "Buff", can carry 70,000 lbs of armament, has a range of 8,800 miles, a top speed of over 500 miles per hour, and costs us about $81 million.  Each.  Our government owns around 75 of them.  Do the math, and get back to me!
