Hi would anyone know if these 3 buffs were over together on a deployment between the years above
55-0090
55-0091
56-0629
I have dates for all the B52s ive seen except these and without some of my early log books i have no idea where or exactly when i might have seen them.

Hi Red,
I think I'm correct in saying that there were 14 B-52D deployments to the UK 1979 - 82. The only a/c on you're list participating in those deployments was 50090 - at Upper Heyford in Nov'80. (This also deployed to 'Heyford in Sept'76)
As for the others, I'm not aware of them ever visiting the UK but if you did see them over here I would be very interested to know where that was.

cheers,
Graham

Thanks Graham i wish i knew,i had assumed id seen them at brize,fairford or marham but that now seems unlikely.
the oldest book that i still have them noted in was 1987 so no clues as to even the exact year seen although i thought it was around the time i saw these ones
55-0071,55-0080,56-0694 seen 27.04.80 at Marham
56-0606,56-0617,56-0671 seen 25.08.80 at Brize Norton
56-0600,56-0679,56-0690 seen 26-04-81 also Brize
many thanks again for looking
