"Looking at a video of a full size B52 going in, I can't help but notice the similarities between the two crashes*. This was the judgement given by a full size B52 pilot of the full size going in.

A note regarding this awful video, provided by a former B-52 pilot: "The B-52 in a steep turn at low airspeed loses roll control, resulting in a natural over-banking tendency. The small rudder authority is unable keep the nose from dropping, nor can it pick up the lower wing. B-52s do not have conventional ailerons, but spoilers on the upper wing surface similar to the MU-2. The first flashes of light seen prior to impact is the lower wing contacting high power transmission lines in the area."
