MITO Video For B52 Brats

OK!  This is for all you B-52 Brats.  This is an awesome video of the alert crew drilling MITO (Minimum Interval Take-Off )  

I've actually seen this in person...I don't know if it was as many planes, but I have seen them take off like this and it is remarkable. 

Check it out! http://www.fark.com/cgi/vidplayer.pl?IDLink=4632948

I have to say...as much as I love the B52 and can pick out that swirl in the sky any time any place, I don't know if I'll ever warm up to the battle ship gray color.  The BUFF of my time was done up in Camo...Different era, different war, different paint job I guess.

Global Thunder...Rock on baby!

I loved watching that!Thank you for sharing it. Dad was a KC135 pilot and I spent many a times down at the Alert Shack playing pool and watching them do the take offs. It reminded me of why I have early hearing loss. No too big of a price to pay to see such a thrilling event :)

MITO Video for B52 Brats

Awesome video. Although I have seen a lot of B52s (Dad was the crew chief on the 1st B52 assigned to Ellsworth AFB), I've never been able to see them in the MITO. Did see C-130's do it.

I'll never get tired of seeing the BUFF in flight!

C5

Today as I headed home down the 840, my daughter rubber necked around from her car seat and yelled out, "Plane!"  It was far away still.  It had completed a turn and was heading away from us.  I was entering an intersection, so I assumed it was ...

My mother hates when I say this, but sometimes I think life on a military base is like life in a Cult. Now please don't take that wrong!  I don't mean we should all wear matching robes and the same kind of sneaker that will help us walk in space whe...

I am totally disappointed by these G.I. Joe previews I am seeing.  Not that it doesn't look like a good movie—it's just, well, not G.I. Joe to me.When I first saw the mention of the new "joe" movie it was during the Super Bowl.  I told my husband...

Music Strikes the Memory Cord

Music soothes my soul.  It fixes me when I feel broken, but it also transforms me to another time and place.  My friends have called me the Rain Man of Music—at least for the 80's.  It seems like almost any song that comes on the radio I c...
