A B-52 Stratofortress taxis through the wash rack, also known as a bird bath, at Andersen Air Force Base, Guam, after a mission Oct. 8, 2014. The aircraft was navigated by Lt. Col. Steve Smith, 93rd Bomb Squadron from Barksdale Air Force Base, La., who reached the 9,000 flying-hour mark, leaving him with the most flying hours in a B-52H; the next aviator is 2,000 hours behind him. Bombers have deployed to Andersen for more than 10 years to support the Continuous Bomber Presence mission in the Pacific area of responsibility. (U.S. Air Force photo by Staff Sgt.
