Wonder what kind of clunkers the Russians are flying around with bombs aboard.

You mean like our B-52 fleet that is older than every crew member flying them? And have one family that is up to the third generation of B-52 pilot?

Yeah like that, except with a paranoid Putin ordering massive maneuvers from the North Atlantic to invading airspaces across Europe.

They haven't invaded any airspace in Europe. When they do enter airspace it's into the ADIZ, which is positive identification airspace, but still open.

Maybe so.


Pentagon Claims Russian Nuclear Bombers Invaded US Airspace Near Alaska

The international airspace they are going in is an accident waiting to happen also.

"They are testing us, they are testing our defences, they are testing our reactions and they are engaging to a degree in a game of chicken and that's very dangerous.

"So we are seeing the possibility of mid-air collision, not between RAF and Russia aircraft, but between Russian aircraft and civilian aircraft, increasing."

Oh, come on really….IS that what you think is going on here? Russia is playing 'chicken' with the US? I suppose the build up of current US forces in Ukraine as well as incursions into the Black sea and Moldova Transnistria have nothing to do with the sudden Russian 'aggressive' response.

His aggression in Ukraine and his subsequent feeling out of the West's preparedness are all on Putin. Hitler did the same thing. He took a little here, took a little there, demanded things, made promises of non aggression then made his move when he was confident any war that started could be limited and handled. Bungled right into a World War.
Here we go again.

Say one of them aging Bear prop bombers collides with a modern passenger liner, that's not going to ease any tensions.

Here's a fun website: Nuke Map

Gives you blast radii for common nukes, accidents, enter your own yield, etc... Very interesting, very sobering.

The Tu-95s were produced until the mid-1990s, unlike the B-52s which ceased production in the mid-1960s.

Shouldn't it be "test run" instead of "accident"? i mean. . .. really

nothing like that has happened anywhere recently so that by itself is cause to be hopeful about future 'mishaps'
todays hi-tech systems are much more sophisticated than what we saw/remember from back in those days

well as crazy as this sounds my grandfather RJ Meyer
was the pilot of that plane. I was at his house in
1986 or 87 when it was declassified and the SHTF.
He was on the phone with the El Paso times
BBC etc. One of my favorite stories he ever retold.
And only after it was declassified like a good officer from the
original 509th would.

that's exactly right !
After training in the early 40's my grandfather started flying in B-29's
Then RB29's in Alaska for the Cold War spying and Korea
Then B-36's (his favorite plane) And finally B-52's,
he then retired after Vietnam
in 1974 . So indeed that's an OLD Plane.

Two Russian nuclear-capable bombers intruded into the US air defense zone near Alaska last week, the Washington Free Beacon website quoted Pentagon officials as saying on Friday.


From your first source. That's exactly what I said. They entered the ADIZ.

The RC-135 does the same thing to Russian airspace and there's just as much risk of collision work them.

So what would the blast radius have been?


You can use the below link to calculate pretty much any blast anywhere .

The one dropped in Hiroshima was 9 kiloton. This one was 10 megaton. And one megaton has 1000 kiloton. Can you imagine what force and radius the second one would have had? Or to put it in TNT, one kiloton has 1000 ton of TNT. One megaton has 1 milion ton of TNT. So in the second bomb we're talking about 10.000 kiloton or 10 milion ton of TNT.
Scary!!!

What's "Priceless"? Tico was a refurbished Essex class carrier from WWII. Not a lot of flight deck area to work with. The A-4 had a hydraulic accumulator for it's brakes when it's engine wasn't running. You got about three applications of brakes and then you didn't have any. They were manually pushing the A-4 from the hangar deck to an elevator, when the ship rolled and the aircraft went overboard. The pilot, who was riding brakes, was lost with the aircraft. The aircraft was lost 80 miles from Okinawa which is a long way from mainland Japan. At the time the US was administrating Okinawa and didn't return control to Japan until 1972. Technically the 500 mile claim was correct at the time.

A Mark 17 is a 17 megaton nuclear device, its a city buster, the most power nuclear weapon the United States ever developed.

Well sure, but it's a legitimately great plane. No need to mess with it very much.
