Would you like to ride in my beautiful B-52?

B-52s on Flight Line at U-Tapao

If you actually could book a ride on a B-52, this would certainly be the place to do it. Unfortunately, this is only a fantasy web site constructed as a class project for ITD 210.

Today, neither U-Tapao RTNAF (Royal Thai Navy Airfield) nor SAC (Strategic Air Command) exist as hosts to the mighty B-52 Stratofortress.

The last B-52 departed U-Tapao in 1975. The airfield has since been converted into an international airport. The U.S. Air Force later combined both SAC and TAC (Tactical Air Command) into what they call ACC (Air Combat Command) in 1991.

In the meantime, however, the B-52 is still in use and flying missions daily for the U.S. Air Force.

In order to fly on a B-52 today, you would have to become a commissioned Air Force flight officer, be assigned to B-52 flight training, then get assigned to an active U.S. Air Force B-52 squadron.

Be sure to check out our links to U-Tapao Airport, the B-52 Stratofortress Association, Air Combat Command, and the U.S. Air Force site.

Up, Up and Away!
