Colorado – US Air Force Academy: B-52D Stratofortress, Diamond Lil
Image by wallyg
This Boeing B-52D Stratofortress, nicknamed Diamond Lil, was flown from 1957 to 1983 and ended its career with over 15,000 flying hours. This long-range, subsonic, jet-powered strategic bomber was moved from Peterson Air Force Base in December 1983 and dedicated on . It is one of the two B-52D’s credited with a confirmed MIG kill during the Vietnam conflict. Flying out of U-Tapao Royal Thai Naval Airfield in southern Thailand, the crew of the "Diamond Lil" shot down a MIG northeast of Hanoi during "Linebacker II" action on Christmas Eve, 1972.
The United States Air Force Academy is an accredited college for the undergraduate education of officer candidates for the United States Air Force. The youngest of the five United States service academies, it was founded in 1959 and graduated its first class in 1959. With a total enrollment of only around 4,500, the Air Force Academy is among the most selective colleges in the country. The campus of the Academy covers 18,000 acres on the east side of the Rampart Range of the Rocky Mountains, just north of Colorado Springs, at a stated altitude of 7,258 feet above sea-level, which is the elevation of the cadet area.
The Cadet Area, located approximately four miles west of the Academy’s north entrance off U.S. I-25, was designed by Skidmore, Owings and Merrill (SOM) and lead architect Walter Netsch, with SOM partner John O. Merrill relocating from Chicago to a Colorado Springs field office to oversee the construction. Completed in 1963, and expanded from 1965-1968 by the architectural firms of Leo A. Daly, Inc. and Henningson, Durham, and Richardson, the Cadet Area has gone largely unchanged since. The design is notable for its distinct, modernist style–contrasting the traditional designs of West Point and Annapolis–with extensive use of aluminum on building exteriors, suggesting the outer skin of aircraft or spacecraft.
