      Not airliner related, but I need help finding decals and pictures of the B-52H stationed at Minot AFB circa 1967. I can’t find any good reference with my searching. My dad flew them out of Minot 64-68, and I want to build a model of it. I prefer 1/144 scale, but will do any scale for this subject.

      Keep em separated!

      There’s not much to look for unless you want a specific tail number that you know was assigned to the 5th BW at that time. In 1967 most BUFFs were starting to be painted in the SAC SIOP camouflage with white bellies, and almost no markings. The “USAF” and tail number were in black on the fin in very small characters, usually the last four on the nose, and a tiny SAC badge and a tiny wing badge opposite it on the forward fuselage was about it for markings. They were about as anonymous as it got.

      In 1967 there were still BUFFs flying in painted aluminum (not natural metal by then) over glossy white, with a full size SAC and wing badge superimposed over the Milky Way sash on the nose, with the full size, full color stars & bars and USAF titles on the nose, wings, etc.
