Video: The US Air Force's B-52 Bomber has been around since the 1950s and can hold up to 31,750kg of weapons. It's a legendary beast that stretches 47.5m long, has a wingspan of 56m, and hits 12m tall. Known as the BUFF (that's for Big Ugly Fat Fucker), it can hold nine weapons on each wing and 27 more inside the weapons bay. More devastatingly, it can also hold eight nukes inside. Big and ugly, indeed.
