B-52 — The World's Greatest Warplane


Welcome to the Official Site of the B-52 Stratofortress Association

Here you can find collections of stories and news relating to the history and current operations of the World’s Greatest Warplane: the Boeing B-52.

The People Behind the B-52

We bring together all those who have been or are associated with the BUF—designers and builders, aircrew, maintainers, enthusiasts — to exchange memories. We try to help old buddies find each other -- anything it takes to keep alive the history of the weapon known in its early days as “America’s Long Rifle.”
