"The final elimination of a B-52G"
Personnel with the 578th Storage and Disposal Squadron lift a B-52G's tail section onto a custom-made cradle Dec, 19, 2013, at the 309th Aerospace Maintenance and Regeneration Group, Davis-Monthan Air Force Base, Ariz. The cradle is purposely placed 30 degrees off center and a minimum of six feet apart from the aircraft's fuselage in order for Russia's satellites to verify the elimination.
