One of my fond childhood memories was putting together a 1/72 scale B-52 and attaching the SAC decal to the side of the fuselage. Knowing SAC was on my side made me sleep a little safer at night knowing that the thunderbolts in SAC's hands were going to safeguard democracy. SAC on DVD?! Cool!

Oh, just an FYI, you had listed my blog entry earlier with a review of Project Orion. I wrote another blog entry today that you may prefer in its place???

We are very fortunate that the B-52 is still useful, Power's hopes to follow it with the B-70 and the DSBF didn't work out, leaving us with an old but great bomber.

I've added you to the sidebar, I'll work a link to the new post into one of mine. The Apollo/Orion decision ties into Sakharov's work

and a date not well know; December 20 1961. I'm researching the issue, but can't prove anything yet.

They didn't get much publicity in the first Gulf War, but when Iraqi soldiers were questioned after the war, what they admitted to fearing the most was the sight of a B-52 on the horizon. You can only dig in so deep. God Bless America.
