A Modern Platform

And I thought my humor was dry:

"We are committed to continuing to support the warfighter by making this the most modern platform possible," said Forrest Gossett, Boeing Wichita spokesman.

That "modern platform" would be the B-52H, first deployed in 1962. Of course, much of the guts and skin of each tail in the current USAF fleet have been repaired or replaced or upgraded several times since initial delivery, so much of the technology in the B-52 really could be modern.
