Flying Fowl Italian Style
On the day after Christmas 2011, the one-of-a-kind "Gallo" (Rooster) aircraft created by builder Ottone Baggio flew for the first time in Nervesa della Battaglia, an Italian town north of Venice. As author, Giuliano Basso writes, "After about ten minutes, the chicken falls to his hen-house ... oops... hangar." Watch the video.

Can't say for sure from this pic but... The B52 can drop MK56, MK62, MK63 and MK65 naval mines. I think they drop at about 1000' ~350 knots.

The B-52 flies 'level' at a slightly nose-down attitude, as you can see.

This is because the wings are tilted up at the front for take-off. Since it cannot 'rotate' like conventional aircraft (with it's bicycle landing gear), the wing must tilt up to get the lift necessary.

Since the wings are level during flight, the fuselege is nose down.
