Boeing B-52 Stratofortress (58-0189)


Handful of throttles...B52G 58-189 (8th AF, 379th BW, Wurtsmith AFB, Michigan) on low level simulated bombing run somewhere over the U.S. I'm the Crew Chief and took the photo from the Instructor Pilot (IP) seat. 1979.

Made the Crew Chief's job easier!
Thank you for all of your uploads, Mr. Walker!
In 1979, I was in year 2 of my first stint with the USN. My squadron, VA-82, was stationed at NAS Cecil Field, FL and flew the A-7E SLUF (hence my screen name). "It's not very fast, but it sure is slow!"
Question: Do you recall what the top row of engine gauges measured? There seems to be some discrepancy between the needles for 1,2,7,8 and 3 thru 6. Do you know why this might be? All other gauges seem to be pointing in pretty much the same directions (per row).
Just some idle curiosity on my part. Thank you for your service!

The gauges across the top row are EPR, or exhaust pressure ratio, next row is RPM in percent, then exhaust temps and last row is fuel flow.
^^^^ Thank you, Jim! I appreciate the info!
