From the angle taken this picture, the B-52 doe's not look as giant as it really is, Eleu.
An impressive big plane, 8 engines with a unique roar's.
Fine view against the blue sky.

The famous bomber loos actually slim on a side view. Good slightly upwards angle. Nice sky. Like Ike mentioned the eight engines are the most special feature of this on. It must be quite a fuel guzzler, using 8 of those first generation jet engines.
