January 10, 1964, started out as a typical day for the flight test group at Boeing's Wichita plant. Pilot Chuck Fisher took off in a B-52H with a three-man Boeing crew, flying a low-level profile to obtain structural data.
Over Colorado, cruising 500 feet above the mountainous terrain, the B-52 encountered some turbulence. Fisher climbed to 14,300 feet looking for smoother air.

Nope, they are used to start fires.

They were likely on a training mission -- terrain following/avoidance.

Just because it isn't abnormal, doesn't mean it's not low. It also may not seem low in relation to the ground, but that terrain makes it seem pretty low to me(your pic of the terrain). Hell, I grew up next to Plant 42 and saw all kinds of acft flying low.

Now that I've been a controller for the past six years, 500 MSL or 500 AGL is pretty damn low. For a lot of high performance fixed wing, less than 500ft NOE is pretty norm. I just think its funny to say its not low, just because it can fly low. Especially with terrain and especially obstructions.

We had C-130s and C-17s that would do NOE when they were inbound late at night(during the time the like to fire rockets).

that's nuts

i found a crack in the skin of a dc-9 just above the #2 pylon that had come in for an engine change that sent it to the boneyard in arizona....the inspectors were

it was written up as 'severe vibration in #2 engine'...i guess it was pretty severe to crack the skin...which was titanium in that area
