    ….except the B-52H will get the last laugh. It looks like it will outlive its cousins.

    The USAF ‘BOMBER Vector’ has given a huge endorsement to the ageing Boeing B-52H — it has lower operating and less complex operational costs than the B-1 and B-2. The USAF will retain the B-52 because of its versatile payload and its ability to carry the new long range stand-off cruise missile. As many as 75 B-52Hs will remain in service until at least 2050. A $22-billion package of upgrades is now planned, including new engines.

    The USAF under the new ‘Bomber Vector’ plan will retire the Lancer as the new B-21 Raider arrives. The B-1 was originally slated to remain in service until 2040, but it will now go ‘no later than’ 2036. The air force also looks set to retire its expensive B-2 fleet in favor of the new Northrop Grumman B-21 Raider. Initially flagged to remain in service until 2058, the B-2 could be gone by 2032.

    That's the Joke Brumby. It seems like B52 will be flying deep into the future so we have two Constitution class starships of the 23rd century about to be retired well B52 reengined with warp drive passes them by.
