How much longer are these bombers going to be allowed to fly?

Based on the current economic outlook I’d say another 50+ years.

My brother was in the USAF in the late 1960s/1970s. He pulled many new cables to replace broken ones within B-52 airframes. Even then those planes were full of pop-riveted repair plates and "stop drilled" cracks. They were old planes then and down right ancient now. Air crews were afraid of them then, so they must be petrified of them now.

It is a wonderful bomber. They should tool up and build new ones. Our crews deserve to fly in something besides scrap metal.
