World's First B-52G.

World's First B-52G

The B-52 is part of the Zorinsky Memorial Air Park display just inside one of the Offutt Air Force Base gates. It can be seen vaguely from the busy road outside of the base.

Civilians can ask for a visitor's pass at the visitors center at the gate 1.5 miles south of the air park off of Fort Crook Road.

World's First B-52

At the northwest corner of Offutt Air Force Base you can gaze upon a military gray B-52G, the first one ever. It's mounted on a pedestal, behind a fence.

[Thanks to tipster John Van Huffel for noting that this is the oldest B-52G, not the oldest B-52 period.]
