Aviation BUFF

I spent 27 years in the U.S. Air Force and saw your commercial on television -- super job of recalling what we as a country and as a military have been through. I was privileged to work on everything your company made during my time in the Air Force, and my skull still has bumps from running into every corner of your aircraft.

I still hold dear even at the age of 68 my time on your jets, but the one I hold the dearest is the BUFF (B-52 Stratofortress). Please continue as a company to build stuff that's solid and will take the punishment that is needed for a solid, well-designed aircraft.

Thanks for what you do and build. Your commercial brought a tear to my eyes!
