7-Engine B-52 Double Up

I dare say (with 13% ironing that)- thank heavens it was designed to operate after losing an engine.

Also cool how planes occasionally completely shed those JT-8D's. (A 707 from LA to Flyover lost an engine exactly one week after Grandma rode it (or the route)...(sometime in the 1980s)...seems to happen less often these days.

Not sure what JT-8Ds have to do either with the BUFF or the 707, but carry on...

@#%^@! 1950/1960 jet engines that have little or no bypass, make a lot of noise and a nice trail faint black smoke...just living up to my purpose of being the anti-Evan and glossing over details for the big picture while not necessarily knowing what I'm talking about.

These things just weren't built to last I guess.
