[edit] Information

For nearly half a century one bomber has dominated the skies. During those fifty years it has delivered more conventional bombs than any other aircraft. With a maximum speed of 650 mph, a range of of over 8000 miles, and capable of dropping a massive 70.000 lbs. of bombs, it is the most lethal bomber in the world. It can also deliver free-fall nuclear bombs, cruise missiles and precision weapons. When the United States' President wants to wield his 'big stick' he sends in the B-52s. It has flown for nearly fifty years, and is projected to remain in service until 2045. BATTLE STATIONS goes from the Ohio hotel where the B-52 was first conceived to the skies over Afghanistan and interviews military planners, pilots, crewmembers and aviation experts to chronicle the history of this extraordinary plane. Revisit the decades when a fleet B-52s remained aloft 24 hours a day, armed with nuclear warheads and just two hours away from the Soviet Union, as a key component of America's Cold War deterrence strategy. Fly in missions from Vietnam, when the Stratofortress was first exposed to fire from surface-to-air missiles, to the Gulf War and beyond, and tour the cockpit with the men who have piloted the B-52 through the years.This is a fascinating look at the aircraft that is arguably the most important and successful warplane ever made. -- DVD Extras joined to the file --
