Regarding the B-52 Stratofortress, it is a long-range strategic bomber and flies at subsonic speeds. This Boeing-made aircraft has been operated by the US Air Force since the 1950s.

The B-52 made its maiden flight on April 15, 1952 and entered service with the USAF in 1955. The Stratofortress is capable of carrying bombs up to 32 tons and covering a range of 8,800 miles (14,080 km) without aerial refueling.
