Here is the story of a B-52 pilot who thought he still was a fighterjock, what an amazing landing.

That large hotel is about 9 miles behind the B-52 ,distances can be deceptive with telephotos and Vegas.

Great set.. What an approach it was! It looks like you stayed near me on runway 03L. I was about to join the group on the run over to 03R when the very sharp turn started and I stayed where I was. Excellent set and thanks for sharing. I'm still a little burned out from the runway sprints. :lol:
