As part of SAC Operation Power Flight, this B-52 became the first jet to circle the world non-stop (along with 53-0397 & 398) named 'Lucky Lady III', in a dramatic display of air power intended to strike fear into any potential enemy. On 16.1.57 they left Castle AFB, flying 24,325 miles and landing at March AFB 45hrs later, after four KC-97 refuellings. Joined 95 BW in 1959 when they re-equipped from B-36s and named 'City of El Paso'. B-52Bs were withdrawn in 1966; 394 was scrapped at WP AFB in 1984
