B-52 Memorial Park is located within the Orlando International Airport just off the Beachline Expressway formerly the Bee Line near runway 18L. It is a small, relatively hidden park under the control of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority (GOAA) and features a retired B-52D Stratofortress, Air Force Serial Number 56-0687, from the Strategic Air Command. The aircraft was at one time assigned to the 306th Bomb Wing of the now defunct McCoy Air Force Base. The bomber was built in 1956 and retired 28 years later in 1984. Final flight was from its last unit of assignment, the 7th Bomb Wing at Carswell AFB in Ft. Worth Texas, to the former McCoy AFB, now Orlando International Airport, on February 20, 1984.

Saw these lined up - the long row of "Shark Fin" tails as a boy here in Orlando when we had McCoy AFB. After HS, I worked on H models in South Dakota. Very happy that we have this - the last flying D Model - come to her forever home with us. A nice park to visit!
Totally randomly and unexpectedly happened across this total weird and awesome 'park'...
Flew in this one while stationed at Carswell AFB, TX in late 70’s to early 80’s.
You can get close to the aircraft and see lots of details, which is nice.
The b 52 display is cool parking is limited but not much else to do here
