Ultra-rare Formation Of America’s Bomber Fleet At Oshkosh Wows Crowd

It was a textbook day at the 2017 AirVenture in Oshkosh on the second to last day of the show.  The weather was beautiful, the crowds were plentiful and the flying was spectacular.  One of the most impressive flyovers of the day was a super-rare three ship formation of all three of America’s strategic bombers.  The Boeing B-52 BUFF, Rockwell B-1 Bone, and Northrup B-2 Spirit dominated the skies in a single pass.  The formation was led by the B-2 Spirit Stealth Bomber.  After the ‘modern’ pass of our nation’s current bombers, the only actively flying B-29s flew in a tight formation followed by the B-25.
