tabMaxwell-Gunter Heritage
Operation Quick Kick

On 24 and 25 November 1956, in an operation known as Quick Kick, four B-52Cs of the 42nd Bomb Wing joined four B-52Bs of the 93d Bombardment Wing for a nonstop flight around the perimeter of North America. Four in-flight refuelings by Boeing KC-97 Stratotankers were required for the 13,500-nautical-mile journey. The press hailed the operation as a warning to potential adversaries, particularly the Soviet Union.  The success of the mission also helped to save the B-52 stratofortress itself.
