I remember seeing them fly in and out of Maclelan AFB by Sacramento California. They’re so big that they looked like airships at a distance.

When Lethbridge or Red Deer had their airshows and the B-52's came for the weekend, the bombers would overnight at Calgary International because the other two airfields weren't able to handle the B-52s.  One time, when a B-52 was taxiing out to the runway, the outrigger on one side took out a whole row of the blue lights.

Same thing happened at O’Hare IAP in Chicago. The B-52s were invited not to return.

Ford has unveiled a retro '70s concept electric pickup

I probably wouldn't have chosen an ugly 70's pickup, but a 1957 Cadillac, or an all electric 1936 Cord...

At least it doesn't that hideous huge snout of a grill that all modern Ford pickups have  :P

Still, hard to go wrong with a '36 Cord Phaeton  :D  All electric ... but, for some reason, it still needed to have those external exhaust pipes  ;)

What exhaust pipes? Those are the liquid cooled heat exchangers. The standard 2036 All electric Centennial Cord offers dual 370HP motor s(700HP total). Add the power option and increase the motors to 500HP each. The 500 mile (and 1000 and 1500 mile long range options) graphene batteries also require cooling at maximum load and during the 60 sec. recharge. So not surprising that the 2036 Cord looks almost identical to the 1936 Cord.

I actually read a Ford brochure at an auto show that described the truck grill as having “side nostrils”! That was the only time I saw that. I bet someone’s career in marketing was short lived.
