After its FIS service this Dart was converted to a drone and flew with the 82nd Aerial Target Squadron. It then went to AMARC with the inventory number AD282 but is now part of the Bissell Auto & Body Co. collection in St. Louis. The other Dart tail belongs to QF-106A 59-0047 and the two respective fuselages are stored on the opposite side of the yard.
This B-52 flew with the 2nd Bomb Wing at Barksdale AFB and was one of the seven B-52s that took part on 16th-17th January 1991 in Operation Secret Squirrel. This was at the time the longest nonstop bombing mission in history by flying than 14,000 miles from Barksdale in 35 hours and a record which would stand for nearly a decade, to fire cruise missiles on the first night of Desert Storm. The frame was retired to AMARG in August 1991 as AABC0376. It was scrapped in November 1999 with the nose section now residing (up tight against the fence) in the Bissell Auto & Body compound in St. Louis.
