Jeff Thatcher, son of Doolittle Raider, Staff Sgt. David Thatcher, gives remarks at the National Museum of the United States Air Force April 18, 2017. The memorial service, including a wreath laying, honored the 75th anniversary of the Doolittle Tokyo Raid in which 80 volunteers used 16 B-25 bombers to strike the Japanese mainland from the USS Hornet aircraft carrier, turning the tide of World War II. The ceremony included two flyovers of B-25 bombers, one in the missing man formation, and a B-1B bomber flyover, one of which had been rechristened the "Ruptured Duck" in a ceremony the day before. Staff Sgt. Thatcher was a crew member on the original Ruptured Duck, during the Doolittle Raid.

The B-52 Stratofortress is one of the oldest legacy aircraft in the Air Force. Since the 1950s, the B-52 has led the force in its dominance as the world’s best; however, just as humans begin to age, so do aircraft. Repeated loading and unloading, changes in air pressure, exposure to altitude and more, contribute to what is referred to as “metal fatigue,” resulting in small, microscopic cracks in engine, wing or tail structures that can have detrimental effects on safety.
