Lightning strikes behind a B-52H Stratofortress at Minot Air Force Base, North Dakota on August 8, 2017. The B-52 can conduct strategic attacks, close-air support, air interdiction, offensive counter-air and maritime operations. It can carry up to 70,000 pounds of bombs and has a range of 8,800 miles. If these planes were humans, some of them would qualify for Social Security. Yes, they’re that old.

This big bird is one of 58 B-52s still on active duty with the Air Force. Eighteen more are with the Air Force Reserve.
