B52 bomber at Loring AFB, Maine

B52 bomber at Loring AFB, Maine
1979 - My time at Loring Air Force Base in Maine was winding down. This was on a cold winter February morning just before sunrise. There was a dusting of snow on the flightline, and the temperature no doubt was in single digits, possibly colder. The coldest place that I had or have ever lived. Coldest day ever was -50 with a wind chill of -75. My job: Guard this B-52.

This scan is pretty dirty. Sorry. I'm not sure which camera I used. Probably my little Konica C35 Automatic.
