Good to see that "Wise Guy" back in service after long term storage at the boneyard.

..... and people worry about the RAF getting a couple of pre-owned 737-7's with a few hours on them.

Is this B-52 an attrition replacement or an increase in the overall fleet?

It's to replace the B-52 (or drone :P) shot down by the Talitubbies in April!

60-0034 is a replacement for the b-52 that burnt out at Guam ,the other B-52 that came out of the boneyard the other year was a replacement for the B-52 that had an electrical fire in the states this brings the total up to 76 the max allowed under the treaty.
