A Boeing engineering team takes an idea born out of the darkest days of World War II and creates a whole new aircraft during a weekend cram session in a Dayton, Ohio, hotel room.
Things were a lot different then. The B-52 had very rudimentary computer systems in the beginning, and was very basic. There wasn't a need for years of software development, or any of the development that modern aircraft require.

They completely changed the nose section. They originally tried the pilots sitting one behind the other, and I think at one point they even had a movable canopy. They quickly found it didn't work well and redesigned it.
