Were any of you SAC guys ever stationed at Amarillo AFB? I think at one time it was listed as the longest runway we had.

I retired from Offutt in 1994, but by then SAC had gone away and the United States Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM) was created.

My father's best man commanded the SAC Wing at Wright Pat back in the early 60s and I remember staying at their house watching the lumbering hulks climbing out.

I have a vague recall of aB52 in front of a hanger, surrounded by a red stripe, and MPs with dogs at opposite corners- guessing those might have carried nukes?

Younger son has a home in Tucson not far from Davis Monthan- the road off I-10 runs right through the boneyard...very cool to see.

It is long - and heated too! Nasa could and did land the 747 shuttle ferry, with Enterprise loaded, there once. I think is so long to guarantee that they could get the bombs from Pantex off the ground in any weather.
