B-52s over Canberra

B52

AS PROMISED the Battle of Long Tan commemorations today featured fearsome American B-52 heavy bombers wheeling in the skies over Canberra.

It was some consolation to those watching that if you can see these behemoths they mean you no harm.

While retired transports and helicopters were present as well the Big Ugly Fat… er.. Fellows once again stole the show.


Our friend Adam Spence from on top of Mount Ainslie also got a good view:

    The B52s were a 1961 and a 1962 model. No wonder they bought two.
