The Air Force announced this fall that it’s oldest bomber, the B-52, will be getting some major upgrades. This week, we explain what our B-52 bombers look like today, what types of modifications they need and why it’s important. Our expert is John Venable, a 25-year veteran of the U.S. Air Force who served in three combat operations and former commander of the celebrated Thunderbirds.
