    what were your orders regarding coming back in the event of World War III? Were you expected to come back at all? (Where to, that would stand a reasonable certainty of still existing?)
    Pretty easy to guess...

    In the event of a successful mission IE payload delivered with aircraft surviving...

    Go to the closest surviving base for a reloading and turnaround for another sortie...

    Continue until the aircraft is downed, no place left to reload, or, someone says uncle....

    With the nuke load on a B-52 it really makes one wonder what all the talk was during the Iraq War of the MOAB... Kind of like comparing Lady Fingers to 1/4 Sticks....
