Suddenly this piece of news surfaced here, no credible source and I imagine hiding a b52 crash wouldn't be easy and if it had actually happened it would've been all over the news.

Yeah, ok. B52s are not flying out of A'stan, therefore there's no reason to be flying low enough to get hit by Taliban ground fire. No manpad in the world capable of hitting a high altitude B52.

This is hokem. If there is any shred of truth to this it's probably an Antinov transport or something. That however is a BIG IF.

This goes for any big bird the US would be using in theater other than C130 platforms.

B1's fly out of a British colony in the Indian Ocean, B52s I believe are still flying from the UK and last I heard Awacs were flying from Germany.

So yeah horse droppings, dear boy.
