So *that's* what makes it go...

On the grounds of the Korean War Memorial they have an old B-52 (the version with a manned tail gunner position).

You know, one of these.

B-52 at the Korean War Memorial, Seoul.

Now here I thought it was those eight, water-injected ozone destroyers on the wing that made this thing fly.

But I was set straight by a young Korean girl who was very proud of her English and her erudition. She told me how the B-52 *really* gets into the air.

I was solemnly informed - it was the Nimbus 2000 that made the B-52 fly.

Nimbus-powered!

Who am I to argue with incontrovertible proof like that?
