Boeing B-52 Stratofortress This plane is an Air Force aircraft. The B-52 is large, and once again, thought of as ugly. It is very large, I've stood by one before! It has two decks, one for pilots, and one for the navagators. Also, it had a tail gun. It was manned by a person that was able to use guns on airplanes very well. Because everybody thought that the B-52 was ugly, they nicknamed it the: Big Ugly Fat Fellow, or BUFF. But, the Stratofortress helped America so much, the name became more of a joke. All the other countrys that were terrified of it. It flew for a lot of wars, and has flown for more than fifty years. It can use a rotary launcher, pictured in the front-middle.
