I found this fun shot in the portion of the Aric Aldrich Collection that came to the Greater St Louis Air & Space Museum.

Looking at that hump in the ice at the front end, this might be one of the prototypes. What do you think?

Um, you can see at least three of the double podded engines --- plus the familiar triangle shaped u/c door --

Likely a B-52G.

Primary recognition: Broad chord vertical stabilizer tip (Narrows to B-52G/H)
Secondary: Small engine intake indicative of J57 (B-52G) rather than TF33 (B-52H).

Okay, Thanks. I was reacting to what I thought I saw at the front end. Still. It is an interesting picture that we could work into a display at the Museum sometime.
