Living on a Strategic Air Command base during the Cold War we had B-52Gs and then transitioned to B-1Bs. They both were loud. Air operations and maintenance were 24/7 365. The sound of those heavy bombers was amazing and there was hardly ever a break. The people who lived on base got used to the constant noise of those engines and many had trouble sleeping when they moved to places that did not have flight ops.

There is nothing more awe inspiring than watching and hearing a B-52G take off with the water injection, the noise and the black smoke, or a B-1B with 40ft blue flames shooting out of the engines while on afterburner.

I know that painting. The artist is Dru Blair, and the name of the painting is “Power”.
