I told a mate of mine about a photograph I saw some time ago, somewhere on pprune of a B-52 in Pan Am colours. I have been searching the archives for so long now to find this that I have begun to lose the will to live. Can anybody point me in the direction of this aircraft and
1) Prevent ny untimely death
2) Convince me that I wasn't halucinating
( I have posted this on the Military forom, but I am posting this on Jet - Blast as well as it may have been the place I originally saw this elusive masterpiece. )
My humble thanks in advance,
Mad Mike.:ok:

A old piccie, cannot remember the caption, but it was relative to one war or another. Don't believe anything you hear and only half of what you see.

Thanks Rotty - many hands make light work ! Yes, I did realise it was a fake but the humour ( somewhat ' black ' - I'll admit ) value is unsurpassable. It still made me laugh seeing it again!
( PS I asked the same question on the Military forum, Jeez they're a little bit tetchy in there at the moment! )
