Capt. Joseph Babboni, 11Bomb Squadron used one of the two B-52 simulators at Barksdale Air Force Base, LA to improve his proficiency at air refueling. Actual flight of a B25 Stratofortress bomber costs approximately $16,000 per hour. The flight simulator costs approximately $400 per hour to operate.
