A wrecker dismantles B-52 56-0585 in front of the Air Force Flight Test Museum Oct. 27. The aircraft arrived at the AFFT Museum in 1983, and over the years the condition of the aircraft had deteriorated. Returning it to museum standards was not cost-effective. The Vietnam-era combat aircraft’s dismantling will provide parts for other B-52Ds at six other aviation museums throughout the country.
