    I love the "Screaming Sparrow" B25.
    The B1 has to be my favourite bomber, Roll on RIAT '06.

    Great pictures ! Some mindless drivle from me, I was in the air force ( US ) some 25 years ago. I was stationed at a B-52 base in the U.S., I can remember like it was yesterday, 6 or 7 B-52's lined up, doing an alert take-off. What an incredible rush it was seeing, hearing and smelling that. And tasting it, once the smoke from the water injection hit you.
