Stratofortress eerily creeps on foggy day

The Boeing B-52D Stratofortress, known as the “MiG-killer,” sits in the installation’s Heritage Air Park during one of the foggiest days this month with visibility recorded at less than a quarter mile and far less in some areas March 27, 2015, at Fairchild Air Force Base, Wash. According to the 92nd Operations Support Squadron’s weather flight, there is a difference between fog and mist. Fog occurs when visibility is less than a half mile, while mist is when visibility is more than a half mile. Fairchild acquired this B-52 in 1983 after making its final flight from Anderson Air Base, Guam, Oct. 12, 1983, as a member of the 92nd Bomb Wing. B-52s were stationed at Fairchild from 1956 to 1994.

The Douglas C-47D Skytrain sits in the installation’s Heritage Air Park during one of the foggiest days this month with visibility recorded at less than a quarter mile and far less in some areas March 27, 2015, at Fairchild Air Force Base, Wash. Typically, the base experiences an average of 11 foggy days each March, but this year, the 92nd Operations Support Squadron has recorded far fewer foggy days. Fairchild acquired the C-47 in 1984 and was previously flown primarily as a military transport developed from the DC-3 with modifications to the cargo door and a strengthened floor.

Deicing simulator

92nd Aircraft Maintenance Squadron Airmen work together to de-ice a KC-135 Stratotanker on the flight line for flight preparation at Fairchild Air Force Base, Wash., Jan. 29, 2014. Aircraft de-icing is a process in which liquid solutions are sprayed onto an aircraft during the winter to both defrost and prevent future precipitation from freezing. Snow and ice on the wings and rear tail component change their shape and disrupt the airflow making it difficult to fly and diminishes fuel economy. The recently installed deicing simulator allows Airmen to train deicing an aircraft without using costly deicing resources and equipment. (U.S. Air Force photo/Staff Sgt. Alexandre Montes)
