The B-52 has been in service for nearly 60 years and yet with new upgrades, it could still here into the 2050s or beyond, that could be that it’s in service for around 100 years, far longer than any other aircraft and possibly outliving the planes brought in to replace it, the B-1 and B-2.
So how and why will they do this and keep a very analogue aircraft relevant in the era of digital warfare.
