Hunter Bishop is the artist for the “Bomber Baron” t-shirt. Hunter is currently serving as a Senior Airman in the United States Air Force. Hunter is one of many “Bomber Barons” that are part of the 23d Bomb Squadron that maintains and flies b52s for strategic bombing. The 23d stands ready to deploy and fly its b-52Hs to enforce national security policy and is ready to deliver overwhelming nuclear or conventional firepower to destroy targets, worldwide, at any time. The 23rd Bomb Squadron recently broke the record with a streak for the most sorties* without a maintenance cancel; previously not broken since the Vietnam War.
*In military aviation, a sortie is a combat mission of an individual aircraft, starting when the aircraft takes off and ending on its return. For example, one mission involving six aircraft would tally six sorties.
