1 August 1955 was the first flight and for 56 years the flew. That's an incredible service length only the B-52 has served longer. Amazing Rick thanks for bringing this up, Very special indeed
Nope. The Gooney Birds have been flying longer.
She's still flying, just not over Iraq.
Beautiful plane. If it works, why fix it?
