The model is of a B-52B, S/N 3396, that I was assigned to in 1957.  I flew my first training mission in this aircraft.  The aircraft was one of three chosen to fly a non-stop around the world mission.  For this mission, named Operation Power Flite, she was named La Vittoria, after a ship that sailed in the first voyage around the world, commanded by Magellan.

As B-52’s have been seen all sorts of liveries, the first were all natural metal, with a gloss white underside that was designed to reflect off nuclear radiation.  This was the livery of La Vittoria.
