My subject is B-52H 60-0057, photographed at Barksdale AFB in May 1995: The obviously weathered and mismatched paint really caught my eye, and after some digging I determined that this appearance was in large part a function of the consolidation of the B-52H fleet following the closures of Carswell and KI Sawyer, as well as the realignment of Fairchild. Furthermore, the primary camouflage color was changed from FS 36081 to 36118 for the B-52 and B-1B fleets during this time, also contributing to the mismatches seen in the photo. 0057 departed depot in ear
